NEW INTERNATIONAL RULES IN SCANDINAVIAN LIBRARES
RDA (Resource Description and Access) is a new standard for cataloguing that will replace the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2). RDA has been developed by the Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA (JSC) with representatives from library organizations and libraries in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and Germany. On 31 March 2013 the Library of Congress switched to RDA, and several other libraries around the world have implemented, or are in the process of implementing, this new standard for cataloguing.
