RDA Glossary

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

Developed and maintained by the RDA Steering Committee (RSC) as part of its oversight of the standard, this glossary will be a useful tool for both training and daily reference.

The four-year RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign Project included a major expansion of the standard to align RDA: Resource Description and Access with the IFLA Library Reference Model, which is the conceptual basis of RDA. It includes

  • an alphabetical listing of all RDA entities, elements, vocabulary terms, and other RDA-related terms;
  • a label and definition for all entries and, where needed, a scope note, inverses, and cross-references; and
  • two indexes: an RDA Elements Index, which organizes RDA elements by their domain entities to give users an idea of the structure of RDA, and an RDA Controlled Vocabularies Index, which is organized by element.
