Abstract


Argues that the RDA was an unnecessary waste of time and money. The few improvements it makes in catalogue records could have been accomplished far more cheaply, promptly, and easily by modifying AACR2. Argues that RDA's abandonment of the ISBD is a retrograde and damaging step.

Keywords


Cataloguing; RDA; ISBD; AACR2
