Welcome to the homepage of the Oceania RDA Committee

The Oceania RDA Committee (ORDAC) is responsible for representing the Oceania Region on the RDA Steering Committee. ORDAC was established in 2018 by the Australian Committee on Cataloguing (ACOC) and the LIANZA Cataloguing Special Interest Group (New Zealand). We are working to expand the coverage of ORDAC beyond Australia and New Zealand, and encourage input from communities in other parts of Oceania with an interest in RDA. You are warmly invited to contact the Secretary of ORDAC to find out more.

More information about ORDAC is also available in our Terms of Reference
