RDA: Catalan translation
The change towards RDA is becoming a reality. The Biblioteca de Catalunya has signed an agreement with the American Library Association to make open and free available the Catalan translation of RDA in pdf format, from its web, for a period of one year, to facilitate librarians become familiar with this new cataloging code in a gradual way.
The Catalan translation of RDA has been done by Assumption Estivill Rius, to whom we appreciate for her work and availability to collaborate with the Biblioteca de Catalunya
Throughout this year the translation will be added to RDA Toolkit, a resource of online access by subscription. The Biblioteca de Catalunya is managing a collective subscription since 2017 to provide access to the library system of Catalonia.
