Speaker: Deborah Fritz
Speaker: Diane Hillmann
Speaker: Gordon Dunsire, Independent Consultant

This forum will address the essential question “What is an RDA Record?" The panel will describe the bibliographic worldview of RDA and what an RDA record might look like outside of the MARC21 format, present examples of RDA records viewed from within an RDA editing system, and discuss the documentation and other communication channels that can support the management of such records.

Gordon Dunsire is the current chair of the Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA (JSC), and has been a major proponent of RDA as an important resource in mapping our way through the transition from MARC to the new cataloging environment.

Jon Phipps, a principal in the firm of Metadata Management Associates, LLC (MMA), has lead the effort to bring RDA data into a robust technical environment, using tools such as GitHub to extend the capabilities of the Open Metadata Registry (OMR), the ‘home’ of the RDA Vocabularies since 2008.

Deborah Fritz, a principal in the firm of TMQ, Inc. (The MARC of Quality), is part of the development team for RIMMF (an RDA data creation tool based on the constrained RDA elements, and made available in 2011 under a Creative Commons license). The RIMMF team has recently been working closely with JSC and MMA to enable export of RDA records in RDF format.
