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?”

CC:DA Task Force to Investigate the Instructions for Recording Relationships in RDA
Formed: June 10, 2012
New members added: Feb. 2014
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.
Status: revised timeline: discussion paper(s) by Midwinter 2015
Submitted: discussion paper (Midwinter 2013); report (Annual 2013); oral report (Annual 2014); discussion papers on structured descriptions and accompanying material (Midwinter 2015)
