At its August 24 meeting, the Committee of Principals requested that ALA Publishing on behalf of the Co-Publishers of RDA: Resource Description and Access work with the JSC and the U.S Test Committee to formulate a plan for the rewording of RDA and to define the role of the copy editor.
Today the Co-Publishers are releasing "The Plan for the Rewording of RDA and the Role of the Copy Editor". The statement details the editorial steps necessary to reword RDA and sets a goal of submitting five chapters for review by the JSC and then the U.S Test Committee no later than June 2012.
The search to identify a copy editor with the knowledge and skills to take on this assignment is underway. More details about the copy editor and the rewording plan will be shared as soon as they become available.
