Best Practices for Music Cataloging: Using RDA and MARC21, Version 1.1(2015)
The RDA Music Implementation Task Force was formed in September 2011. Its charge comprises several tasks, three of which are fulfilled in the present document:
1. Create music-related best practices documentation to supplement Resource Description and Access (RDA).
2. Make recommendations regarding the relationship between the MLA music-related best practices document and other official RDA policies such as the Library of Congress/Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements (LC-PCC PS) and other decisions disseminated by PCC.
3. Create complete examples for scores, audio recordings, musical works, and musical expressions.
Note: for versions later than 1.1, the content in this document is maintained within the RDA Toolkit, and no longer as a stand-alone document. A supplemental document containing full record examples and other content is maintained as a text document, updated regularly, and is available here.
