Revision of the Beta Toolkit Menu Tab for Resources

This paper proposes a further re-organization of the Resource menu of the beta RDA Toolkit, as part of the SES (String Encoding Scheme) Project. The final layout of guidance and instructions within this menu is dependent on discussions about the wider issues of incorporating and managing ‘community’ tools in the Toolkit.

RSC Paper on RDA Conformance

Gordon Dunsire,
RSC Technical Team Liaison Officer
May 12, 2020

The RSC is soliciting feedback on the following paper that will be discussed at the July asynchronous meeting: RDA conformance.

This informative paper explains what is RDA-conformant metadata, “presents a draft expansion of RDA Toolkit guidance to accommodate the topic,” and asks three questions:

“Question 1: Should the RSC offer conformance certification in addition to the passive guidance included in the Toolkit?

Question 2: Should the Toolkit include content for assessing conformance for specific application communities? Content might include examples, alignments and mappings for parsing metadata statements, and decision trees.

Question 3: Should the RSC offer additional technical guidance and support for conformance, interoperability, and mappings between RDA metadata and non-RDA applications?”

Abstract

This paper makes recommendations for developing expression “content” elements to conform to the aggregates model. The paper does not address the need for additional elements to improve the recording of aggregating expressions and aggregating works.
