After struggling for a long time with my frustration with the
difficulties of dealing with MARC, FRBR and RDA concepts in the context
of data management, I have done a blog post that explains some of my
thinking on the topic:
The short summary is that RDA is not really suitable for storage and use
in a relational database system, and therefore is even further from
being suitable for RDF. I use headings ("access points" in RDA, I
believe) as my example, but there are numerous other aspects of RDA that
belie its intention to support "scenario one."
I have intended to write something much more in depth on this topic but
as that has been in progress now for a considerable time, I felt that a
short, albeit incomplete, explanation was needed.
I welcome all discussion on this topic.
