[Forwarded on behalf of the JSC Chair; apologies for duplication to those of you who subscribe to more than one the lists receiving this announcement.]


The RDA Toolkit Technical Committee has updated the website of rdaregistry.info, the namespace of the RDA element sets. The website provides access to the element sets as well as examples and datasets which use RDA elements, and maps between RDA elements and other namespaces. The maps include one between elements for RDA relationship designators and the MARC relator codes. Data files are available in multiple formats.

The website will eventually contain guides to using the RDA elements, and application profiles for RDA records. The website has a FAQ section, and is linked to the RDA-Vocabularies project on GitHub where developers are encouraged to share code, views and queries.
