Future Scenarios for RDA
Records
Dr. Barbara B. Tillett
Chief, Policy & Standards Division, Library of Congress
& Chair, Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA
For LIANZA (Library and Information Association of New
Zealand Aotearoa)
September 2012
LC’s Bibliographic Framework
Initiative (BFI)
• US RDA Test results: MARC seen as
barrier to achieving benefits of RDA
– Recommended evidence of credible progress
towards a replacement for MARC
• Mappings or services to enable easy use
of both new structures and MARC
• Led by Roberta Shaffer, Associate
Librarian of Congress for Library Services
– Internal steering group at LC
• Initiative to
– Analyze present and future environment
– Identify components of the framework to
support users
– Plan for evolution from present framework to
future
Contractor
• May 22, 2012 LC announced contract with
Zepheira (Eric Miller and company)
• Report in September 2012
– Internal LC discussions
– January 2013 Open Forum at American
Library Association Conference
Issues to be Addressed
• Aspects of current metadata encoding
standards to retain or evolve
– or replace with something more compatible
with Internet
• Benefits of Semantic Web and linked data
technologies for adjusting current models
• Maximum re-use of library metadata so
users exposed to more quality metadata in
innovative ways
Issues, continued
• Navigate relationships among entities in
library catalogs and the broader Internet
• Displays of metadata beyond MARCbased
• Identify risks of action and inaction, assess
acceptable pace of change
• Plan for bringing existing metadata into
new bibliographic systems
The Process
• Fully collaborative
• Consult
– Partners
– Customers
– Standards experts
– Systems designers and builders using library
metadata
• Host meetings to gather input from all
interested parties
– Associations, organizations, “town hall”
– Invitational meetings in 2012 and 2013
