New Protocol with NDMSO and Other Updates

The RSC is pleased to announce the publication of a protocol with the
Library of Congress Network Development and MARC Standards Office (NDMSO).
It is a light-weight agreement "to support communication between the
editorial processes of the RSC and the NDMSO in order to improve
synchronization of relevant MARC 21 documentation with changes to RDA
vocabularies and designators, and to support semantic interoperability
between data compatible with RDA and data compatible with the MARC 21

The document filename is RSC/Chair/15.

The other protocols with the FRBR Review Group, ISBD Review Group, and ISSN
International Centre have been amended to update references to the former
names of the RSC and RDA Board, with new document filenames in the
RSC/Chair sequence:

   - RSC/Chair/5 Protocol between the RSC and the ISBD Review Group
   - RSC/Chair/12 Protocol between the RSC and the FRBR Review Group
   - RSC/Chair/13 Protocol between the RSC and the ISSN International Centre

Other documents in the old JSC6/Chair sequence have also been amended to
reflect the name changes, with some minor clarification of the wording in
the terms of reference for the RDA Examples Editor and the RSC Music
Working Group, and published with new document filenames. All documents in
the RSC/Chair sequence can be found at
