Now available for purchase and shipping through the ALA Store website, the print version of the RDA Glossary – which allows for easy offline access by students, instructors, and catalogers – contains the complete terminology for RDA as reflected in the improved RDA Toolkit. The RDA Glossary includes:
- an alphabetical listing of all RDA entities, elements, vocabulary terms, and other RDA-related terms;
- a label and definition for all entries and, where needed, scope notes, inverses, and cross-references; and
- two indexes: an RDA Elements Index, which organizes RDA elements by their domain entities to give users an idea of the structure of RDA, and an RDA Controlled Vocabularies Index, which is organized by element.
Developed and maintained by the RDA Steering Committee (RSC) as part of its oversight of the standard, the RDA Glossary will be a useful tool for both training and daily reference. Click here to purchase it.
