Resource Description and Access (RDA)

Resource Description and Access (RDA) is a content standard published by the American Library Association (ALA), Canadian Library Association (CLA), and Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP). RDA is based on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD), and is structured according to those conceptual models. The standard includes instructions for describing library and archival materials, as well as their creators. RDA is currently scheduled to be implemented by the American national libraries in early 2013, replacing The Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition (AACR2).
