Rules for Archival Description (RAD)

Published by Canadian Committee on Archival Description of the Canadian Council of Archives with the National Archives of Canada.

RAD is the Canadian content standard for archival description. Its rules are based on archival principles such as respect des fonds and description reflecting arrangement. RAD contains chapters devoted to the description of several different types of resources, including moving images, sound recordings, and objects. Its structure is similar to that of AACR2. The most recent revision of RAD was issued in 2008.
