About the Webinar

SLIDESHARE PRESENTATIONwww.slideshare.net/BaltimoreNISO/niso-dcmi-nov-16-2011

During a meeting at the British Library in May 2007 between the Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA and DCMI, important recommendations were forged for the development of an element vocabulary, application profile, and value vocabularies [1], based on the Resource Description and Access (RDA) standard, then in final draft. A DCMI/RDA Task Group [2] has completed much of the work, and described their process and decisions in a recent issue of D-Lib Magazine [3]. A final, pre-publication technical review of this work is underway, prior to adoption by early implementers.

This webinar will provide an up-to-the-minute update on the review process, as well as progress on the RDA-based application profiles. The webinar will discuss practical implementation issues raised by early implementers and summarize issues surfaced in virtual and face-to-face venues where the vocabularies and application profiles have been discussed.
