Has anyone yet noticed this change to Appendix K from the August release of the RDA Toolkit:

 

“founded corporate body” has now been split up into three designators with truly unfortunate phrases:

 

founded corporate body of person  An organization that the person founded.

founded corporate body of family  An organization that the family founded.

founded corporate body of corporate body  A corporate body that the other corporate body founded.

 

Besides the unwieldiness of these phrases, and the difficulty that catalogers will have interpreting them, I’m wondering if PCC will make any effort to replace all of the existing 5XXs that have the old RD with the appropriate new one?
