Liebe Alle,

wenn ich das richtig verstehe, sind die RDA-Elemente in 
http://metadataregistry.org/schema/list.html jetzt auch offiziell 
veröffentlicht (s. unten). Da wir uns schon seit Jahren dort bedienen, 
eigentlich höchste Zeit;-)

RDA colleagues,

See the announcement below, also posted on the JSC website.  Feel free 
to share this information with your colleagues.

Regards, Judy Kuhagen

The Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA (JSC), Metadata 
Management Associates, and ALA Publishing (on behalf of the 
co-publishers of RDA) are pleased to announce that the RDA elements and 
relationship designators have been published in the Open Metadata 
Registry (OMR) as Resource Description Framework (RDF) element sets 
suitable for linked data and semantic Web applications.

The elements include versions "unconstrained" by Functional Requirements 
for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and Functional Requirements for 
Authority Data (FRAD), the standard library models underpinning RDA, 
that are intended for use in applications by non-RDA communities.

The published version of the RDA element sets builds on several years of 
work by the DCMI/RDA Task Group. Earlier versions developed by the Group 
will remain available, but will be deprecated for further development 
and use, and redirected to the new version.

Gordon Dunsire, Chair of the JSC, said "The RDA element set is a 
distillation of modern approaches to resource discovery supporting rich 
descriptions of library and cultural heritage materials and detailed 
relationships between them at international level. The JSC has recently 
established a working group to assist in extending and refining the RDA 
elements, and hopes that they will be useful to other communities, 
ranging from close neighbours in library linked data to the global 
networks of general search."

Diane Hillmann of Metadata Management Associates said "We are extremely 
pleased to be able to make this new version available now in fully 
published form, ready for implementation by libraries and vendors. We 
look forward to discussing the important features available in this 
version with our colleagues at the upcoming ALA Midwinter meetings and 

James Hennelly, Managing Editor of RDA Toolkit, said "This is an 
important update to the RDA Registry and a crucial step in the 
advancement of RDA's mission to be a standard that is accessible to both 
cataloging professionals, through the toolkit and print and ebook 
publications, and to application developers seeking to make use of 
library data, through the Registry's expression of the RDA elements and 

The basic RDA element set namespace is rdaregistry.info 
<http://rdaregistry.info> and it contains a total of over 1600 
properties and classes. Elements are distributed in sets (the number of 
elements in each set is given in brackets):
