Introduction to RDA Basics

This Web site is intended to provide an introduction to the basic features of Resource Description and Access, the new cataloging standard based on the principles elucidated in Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Entities and implemented by the Library of Congress and other national libraries in 2013.

See the links to the right for more information about RDA.

This information on this site was created for a project on RDA completed in the summer of 2012. Unfortunately, the site is up-to-date only until that time. For more up-to-date information, please see the “Resources” link at right.

The actual RDA instructions are available online, by subscription, as the RDA Toolkit or in print form.
