CC:DA/TF/ Investigate Changes Affecting RDA in the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition
March 1, 2012
The Task Force to Investigate Changes Affecting RDA in the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, will review the impact of changes in the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed., on RDA instructions and examples and propose appropriate revisions to RDA. The text of RDA is expected to conform to the Manual, and changes to the RDA Editor’s Guide may be needed. Further, data recorded following RDA instructions is expected to conform to the Manual in details not specifically covered by RDA instructions. In particular, the task force should review the provisions on capitalization in the Manual, which might require revisions to Appendix A of RDA and relevant examples.
The task force should submit an interim report at the 2012 ALA Annual Conference and a final report at least a month prior to the 2013 Midwinter Meeting.
