Rewording of RDA: Resource Description and Access

At its August 24 meeting, the RDA Committee of Principals requested that ALA Publishing work with the Joint Steering Committee (JSC) and the U.S Test Committee to formulate a plan for rewording RDA and also to define the role of the copy editor.

The Co-Publishers of RDA: Resource Description and Access released "The Plan for the Rewording of RDA and the Role of the Copy Editor", which details the editorial steps necessary to reword RDA. It further sets a goal of submitting, no later than June 2012, five chapters for review by the JSC first and then by the U.S Test Committee.
