Australian workshop on RDA to include impact of FRAD
If your travel budget is better than mine, you might want to attend the Australian Committee on Cataloguing’s forthcoming ACOC seminar “RDA : next generation cataloguing standard”.
This seminar aims to answer your questions about RDA and its implementation in Australia. The history and development of RDA will be discussed, especially the impact of the conceptual models FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) and FRAD (Functional Requirements for Authority Data) on the new standard. It will also highlight the relationships to, and differences from, AACR.
Thanks to Library Intelligencer for pointing this out.
