Recording and slides from ALA Midwinter RDA Update Forum available

ALA has made a number of recordings of sessions from January's Midwinter meeting freely available online. Among these is the RDA Update Forum; speakers at the Forum include representatives from LC (Beacher Wiggens), ALA Publishing (Troy Linker), OCLC (Cynthia Whitacre), JSC (John Attig) and PCC (Philip Schreur). Users can access a PDF version of the presentation slides, an MP3 of the audio portion of the presentation, and the recorded audio and slides together. The recording is over one and a half hours long, but well worth listening to because of the broad range of RDA-related information presented. Changes to the RDA Toolkit, proposed revisions to RDA itself, updates on PCC task group activities, and a review of OCLC's new RDA Policy Statement (effective March 31, 2012) are all covered.
