Updates posted to LC's RDA information page, 9/29/2011
On September 29, LC posted two updates to its RDA information page (http://www.loc.gov/aba/rda/). One is a PDF document called "LC RDA Core Elements for November 2011- " (http://www.loc.gov/aba/rda/pdf/rdaprep_core_elements.pdf) and the other is a Word document entitled "RDA alternatives and options - LC's policy decisions for November 2011+" (http://www.loc.gov/aba/rda/source/alternatives_sep2011.doc). In both documents, changes made to LC's RDA policies since the nationwide RDA test are highlighted in yellow. LC plans to use RDA to catalog approximately 5% of its cataloging output beginning in November 2011.
