RDA Updating Process, 2012

The JSC will update content of RDA in the RDA Toolkit via two processes:

  • constituency proposals for changes in intent of existing instructions and addition of new instructions;
  • a “fast track” process for correction of typographical errors, addition or removal of examples, addition of terms to vocabularies, addition of references, clarification in wording, etc.

The JSC and ALA Publishing decided that major changes to the RDA content would appear twice a year (in 2012, in April and October releases of the Toolkit); Changes from the fast track process could appear in any of the releases of the Toolkit; the first changes from this process in 2012 will be in the April release.
