My most bracketed (RDA) record yet | Problem Cataloger

My most bracketed (RDA) record yet | Problem Cataloger | Cataloging | Scoop.it
Books that last that long are often problematic; not bad books, just harder to catalog, and I often learn a lot in the process of making that happen. I am still learning RDA (aren't we all?) so I welcome discussion on my records!

Librarians and other information professionals were among the first to realise the importance of the Internet in the provision of information services, and it is also they who have understood the impact of digital environments on the production, distribution, storage and consumption of information.   Information agencies have worked hard to provide the cataloguing details required to ensure that information can be retrieved, and it is because of this that the Resource Description and Access  (RDA) and it’s specific ‘vocabularies’ were developed and implemented around the world.

SCIS's curator insight, June 20, 2013 2:16 AM

'Understandably, many of you have asked questions about the new standard for resource description and access, RDA: Resource Description and Access. We have attempted to capture a number of these questions and respond to them in the following FAQ. Given that RDA is a work in progress, we know there will be additional questions as it is developed. Consequently, we will add more questions to this list as the months go on'.

I had hoped that RDA would be more based in practice, as in, here are our problems, here's how we can now fix them, isn't this exciting? Instead we are bogged down with things like 'is this unmediated text?
