Making the Move to RDA: A Self-Study Primer for Catalogers is aimed at MARC catalogers who currently create AACR2 records and need to transition to the new Resource Description and Access (RDA) environment. Since both RDA's structure and content differ from AACR2 in many respects, this primer will first detail the development and rationale for RDA as well as its intended goals, principles, and objectives. It will then explain RDA's theoretical underpinnings-collectively known as the FRBR Family of Models.
