During the 3R Project, several RDA elements were identified as being redundant with other elements or were considered to be too granular in scope. These elements were "soft-deprecated". The RSC is curious to know about how institutions are addressing these elements of the RDA Toolkit. A survey regarding soft-deprecated terms is available to complete by 15 September 2023.
Any information regarding soft-deprecated terms is helpful for the RSC and will be analyzed to determine next steps.
"The survey is intended to help the RSC understand which descriptive communities are currently planning to use some soft-deprecated elements. For our purposes, knowing that you have made no decision is valuable data, so please do not worry if you have not reached a decision yet."
