April 2015 RDA Toolkit update and MLA Best Practices

Posted By Tracey L. Snyder, Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Updated: Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The April 14, 2015 update of the RDA Toolkit brought revisions to several RDA instructions that affect music cataloging. The revisions resulting from the work of ALA and the JSC Music Working Group are listed below. Stay tuned for possible revisions to MLA’s Best Practices (in the August 2015 Toolkit update) as a result of these changes.


As a result of numbering changes and other structural changes associated with these revisions in RDA, several areas in MLA’s Best Practices will be out of sync with RDA until the August 2015 Toolkit update. These are also listed below.


ALA/32: MLA and OLAC successfully advocated for expanding the scope of the statement of responsibility element in RDA Chapter 2.

ALA/36: MLA and OLAC successfully advocated for greater clarity in the instructions for recording duration in RDA Chapter 7.

http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-ALA-36-rev-Sec-final-rev.pdf


ALA/29 (on “not identified” elements in distribution and manufacture statements): Changes were made to the core element status of several elements in RDA 2.7-2.10, thus bringing an end to what has become known among practitioners as the “cascading vortex of horror.”

MusicWG/4: Revisions to instructions for creating Access Points for Musical Expressions in 6.28.3. This proposal sought to liberalize and rationalize the creation of access points for expressions. http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-MusicWG-4-rev-Sec-final-rev.pdf

 

MusicWG/5: Revisions to instructions for recording the information for scores and parts bound together in a single physical unit in RDA 3.4.3.2 and 3.21.2.5. http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-MusicWG-5-rev-2-Sec-final.pdf

 

MusicWG/6: Revisions and reorganization of 6.14, Preferred Titles for Musical Works. The intent of the proposal was to make the process of determining a preferred title for musical works easier to comprehend. http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-MusicWG-6-rev-Sec-final-rev.pdf

 

MusicWG/7: Abbreviations for the word “number” in part titles. The proposal codified in RDA the current and historical practice of abbreviating “number” or its equivalent in another language, or adding “number” or its equivalent to an unadorned number. http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-MusicWG-7-rev-Sec-final-rev.pdf

 

MusicWG/8: Revisions to Conventional Collective Titles in 6.14.2.8 and Glossary definitions for Conventional Collective Titles. The proposal removed the closed lists of terms for conventional collective titles and removed the Glossary definitions for these terms. http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-MusicWG-8-rev-Sec-final-rev-2.pdf

 

MusicWG/9: Additional terms for Base Material and Applied Material in 3.6.1.3 and 3.7.1.3. The proposal added terms and definitions that would cover more of the physical characteristics of sound recordings. This proposal was folded into BL/16 which also revised these instructions. http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-BL-16-Sec-final.pdf

 

Numbering/Linking/Captioning Changes Resulting from April Toolkit Update:

    

  • BP 0.2 should now be BP 0.3. Link is needed in RDA 0.3 to what would be BP 0.3.  

  • BP 5.3 should now be BP 0.6.6. The link in the BP instruction text should be to LC-PCC PS 0.6.6.    

  • BP 6.14.2.4 should now be BP 6.14.2.5.1. The caption should change to "Omissions."     

  • BP 6.14.2.5 should now be BP 6.14.2.5.2.

  • BP 6.14.2.5.1 should now be BP 6.14.2.5.2.1.

  • BP 6.14.2.8.4 should now be BP 6.14.2.8.2. The caption should change to “Complete Works for One Broad or Specific Medium.”    

  • BP 6.14.2.8.5 should now be BP 6.14.2.8.3. The caption should change to “Complete Works of a Single Type of Composition for One Specific Medium or Various Media.”     

  • BP 6.14.2.8.6 should now be BP 6.14.2.8.4.

  • BP 7.22.1.3 caption should change to "Recording Duration."    

  • BP 7.22.1.5 should now be BP 7.22.1.4. The caption should change to "Duration of Component Parts."

 

Deletes Needed Resulting from April Toolkit Update:


  • BP 6.14.2.8.3 should be ignored, as the corresponding RDA instruction no longer exists.

  • BP 6.28.3.3 should be ignored, as the corresponding RDA instruction no longer exists.

  • BP 7.22.1.4 should be ignored.
