Task Force to Investigate the instructions for recording relationships in RDA

June 10, 2012


The Task Force to Investigate the instructions for recording relationships in RDA is to consider the structure of elements for relationships and the instructions for recording relationships. It is then to draft instructions for recording structured descriptions of relationships, such as contents notes and accompanying material statements, taking into account the issues raised in the JSC Representative’s discussion paper on this topic (CC:DA/JSC Rep/JCA/2011/5: Descriptions of relationships (b)).

The task force should submit an interim report at Midwinter 2013 and a final report at Annual 2013.
