  • JSC/RDA: Five Years On

    by Barbara Tillett, Mikael Nilsson, Mirna Willer, Pat Riva, Robina Claphan and Diane Hillmann

    The London Meeting of 31 April/1 May 2007 stimulated significant development of Semantic Web representations of the major international bibliographic metadata models, including IFLA’s Functional Requirements family and the International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD), and MARC as well as RDA itself. Attention is now beginning to focus on the management and sustainability of this activity, and the development of high-level semantic and data structures to support library applications. Join a group of the original participants and those who've been working since then to build the next steps for bibliographic data.
