Our guest speakers provided an overview of Resource Description and Access (RDA) and covered topics including development and principles of RDA, a review of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) as the structural foundation of RDA, major changes from AACR2, RDA Core elements for description, preferred titles and names, RDA and MARC21, and the RDA Toolkit.
