Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new cataloging standard, was published in June 2010, and is intended to replace AACR2. Throughout the fall national libraries in the US (including NLM) will conduct a trial of RDA and decide around March 2011 whether or not to adopt it.

The University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, libraries are contributing records, as informal participants. The Technical Services department has also created this RDA wiki page with links to the tool kit and other information. Please review the resources on this site since it is important to familiarize yourself with RDA its approach to cataloging.
