Task Force on RDA Instructions for Heads of State and Heads of Government

CC:DA/TF/Heads of State and Heads of Government/1

August 9, 2010

Charge

The CC:DA Task Force on RDA Instructions for Heads of State and Heads of Government is charged with reviewing the current RDA instructions under 11.2.2 on Heads of state and Heads of government to address previously identified concerns of ALA that “the principle behind [having separate rules for recording the Heads of state and the Heads of government] is unclear. … [T]he instructions for these two kinds of officials [should] be consistent, particularly regarding choice of language”. The task force should consider the possibility of merging the two groups of instructions in a rational and principle-based solution, generating appropriate rules revisions to accomplish those ends.

Further, the task force should review the previously drafted proposal for Ruling Executive Bodies — 5JSC/RDA/Full draft/ALA response, p. 19 — to insure that it is consistent with the task force’s recommendations and proposal(s) regarding the instructions for Heads of state and Heads of government. The proposal regarding ruling executive bodies may be included in the Task Force’s proposal(s) or submitted separately.

The task force will submit an interim report at the 2011 ALA Midwinter Meeting and a final report at least a month prior to the 2011 ALA Annual Conference. Proposals for consideration by the Joint Steering Committee should be submitted to CC:DA at least three months prior to the date of the JSC meeting. Continue reading

    1. Traditional and contemporary attempts to identify and describe simple and complex bibliographic resources have overlooked useful and powerful possibilities, due to the insufficient modeling of “bibliographic things of interest.” The presentation will introduce a resource description approach that remodels and strengthens FRBR by borrowing key concepts from Information Science and the History of Science. The presentation will reveal portions of a network of bibliographic (and other useful) relationships between printings of Melville’s novel dating from 1851-1975 into the present. In addition, structural similarities between the print publication network and the multimedia “mash-ups” seen on YouTube and other websites will be demonstrated and discussed.
