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?”
