RDA and Hebraica: View from the US RDA Test

RDA, Resource Description and Access, is the proposed content standard for cataloging that would supersede the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules. The Library of Congress, National Agricultural Library, National Library of Medicine and 23 partnering institutions joined together to test RDA as a first step to determine whether or not the standard should be adopted. Joan Biella of the Library of Congress and Heidi Lerner of Stanford University Libraries were the only two Hebraica catalogers to participate in the test. Heidi was not able to attend the convention, but Joan spoke about their experiences as official participants in the test and focus on how what they learned and experienced through the test can impact future Hebraica cataloging.

Presented by Joan Biella at the 2011 AJL Convention in Montreal, Quebec.
