The impending launch of Resource Description and Access: RDA will undoubtedly transform cataloging standards that have been virtually unchanged for 30 years, and little guidance is available to help catalogers make a smooth transition to RDA. Practical Cataloging: AACR2, RDA and MARC21 fills this gap by offering a step-by-step guide for mapping these new standards onto existing rules for description. The book thoroughly covers FRBR (Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Records) and FRAD (Functional Requirements of Authority Data), on which the new rules are built, and explores how RDA elements can be incorporated into MARC21.
