The Task Force to investigate definitions of and instructions for accompanying material in RDA is charged to work in collaboration with the Canadian Committee on Cataloguing (CCC) to:

  1. Analyze how the choice of analytic vs. comprehensive description (see RDA affects the treatment of accompanying material.
  2. Evaluate the definition of accompanying material in RDA 2.2.4.
  3. Consider how to revise RDA to resolve inconsistencies in defining the “resource itself” (see Mode of Issuance, Carrier Type, & Colour Content).
  4. Consider accompanying material in relation to the Mode of Issuance (RDA does the presence of accompanying material require describing the resource as a multipart monograph? If not, how can the carrier of the accompanying material be described?
  5. Investigate how RDA should distinguish between a minor accompanying part and a part of a multipart monograph.
  6. Investigate the distinction between a non-predominant part of a resource and accompanying material.
  7. Consider how extent of accompanying material of the same carrier type should be recorded: when is the extent recorded as “2 volumes” vs. “XX pages … + 1 [name of accompanying material] (XX pages)”? How should RDA be revised to support these various options?
  8. Develop a joint discussion paper with CCC to be presented to the RSC addressing these inconsistencies, in time for discussion at ALA Annual in 2016.
