السنة 40, العدد 58, الصفحة 524-567
الملخصThe present study tries to shed light on Resource Description and Access (RDA), which could be an heir to Anglo- American Cataloging rules as an alternative to their revised and amended editions of AACR with its different revisions. RDA comes as an essential to meet the needs of the rapidly vital developments and meets different variables including the rules of RDA and their impacts on the area of library science in general and the field of cataloging in particular which is dominated by internet and the important publication.
The study uses the analytical descriptive method through defining the variables which led to issuing (RDA) rules.
One of the important conclusions of the study shows that RDA rules are not isolated from the preceding traditional rules of cataloging which have become inadequate to meet the requirements of processing the internet resources and the other electronic media, and to match the new developed standards, internet protocols and markup languages (Metadata, MARC21(), XML, etc) RDA rules match also the new models of FRBR and FRAR.
Among the suggestions of the study are: urging libraries, information centers, and other academic institution concerned with libraries and information to adopt (RDA)rules; training the catalogers to apply these rules in their own institutions; and these rules to be translated into Arabic by qualified regional or international institutions
