Our RDA Librarian, Karen, came to me this week with even more RDA resources that she wanted to share with our community. This is what she had to say:

Here are some more good links for information on RDA, FRBR and FRAD.  If any of you know of any others, be sure to send them in!


http://metadataregistry.org/rdabrowse.htm – The list of registered RDA elements and vocabularies.  They will be linked from the RDA Online tool.   Thanks to Diane Hillmann for pointing this good link out.


http://www.rda-jsc.org/rda.html – This is the new address of the RDA main page on the Joint Steering Committee website.  Be sure to check out the FAQ’s.  This replaces the first address listed on the earlier blog post.


http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/5sec6rev.pdf – Issues deferred until after the first release of RDA.


http://www.rda-jsc.org/rdapresentations.html – This page lists recent and future presentations on RDA given by members of the JSC and others involved with the development of RDA.  One to keep an eye on.


http://www.loc.gov/today/cyberlc/feature_wdesc.php?rec=4554 – This is an Library of Congress webcast on FRBR, from Barbara Tillett.  It’s not in their other webcast site because it was for non-catalogers.  It is a good overview that talks about practical applications.


http://tsig.wikispaces.com/Pre-conference+2009+presentation+materials – these are the power points and other materials that go along with the Pre-conference “From rules to entities: cataloging with RDA” held in Montreal.  They are very good.


http://www.d-nb.de/standardisierung/formate/marc_symposium.htm – We posted this before, but its worth another mention. These are the slides and presentations from the German symposium on their MARC21 project.  There are several on RDA that are really good.  They are in English. Bring up two sessions, one to watch the YouTube video and the other to look at the slides.


http://www.loc.gov/marc/marc-functional-analysis/frbr.html – This has several documents from MARC Standards that deal with MARC and FRBR, including mappings.  It also has a FRBR display tool that allows you to create a sample FRBR display from MARC records.


http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/5sec7rev.pdf – This document lists the changes made to AACR2 during the development of RDA.


http://www.archive.org/details/ResourceDescriptionAccessrdaDraftNov.2008 – Karen Coyle’s zipped copies of the Nov. 2008 draft of RDA draft.


http://www.ifla.org/VII/s13/icp/ – IFLA statement of international cataloging principles.  This is a replacement for the Paris Principles.


http://www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future/rda/ – Site for the U.S. National libraries test of RDA.  Has list of testing partners, and background information

            http://www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future/rda/test-partners.html – this is the list of the testing partners that is on the above site.


http://frbr.slis.kent.edu/ – this is the website for Kent State’s FRBR project.  There are links on the site to their other presentations including the following:

            http://frbr.slis.kent.edu/presentations/ALA2009-midwinter-FRBR.pdf  – Presentation given at the ALCTS FRBR Interest Group during 2009 ALA Midwinter called “Developing a FRBR-Based System to Effectively Support User Tasks”


http://exlibris.memphis.edu/music/mla/glennan.pdf – This slide presentation “From AACR2 to RDA: An Evolution” was given in 2006, but it has good background information.


http://celeripedean.wordpress.com/2009/03/12/code4lib-and-frbr/ – this article has lots of really good links in it for FRBR, RDA, and FRAD.


http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/frbr_drafts.html – The drafts for FRBRoo, which as far as I can tell, is a joint effort of museums and libraries to align the FRBR and the CIDOC (a committee of the International Council of Museums) Conceptual Reference Model.
