Cataloging Rules for the 20th Century


GSO writes "An interesting article from D-Lib Magazine: Resource Description and Access (RDA): Cataloging Rules for the 20th Century"


The same issue of DLib has a more constructive article about the best of the old and the best of the new: The Online Library Catalog: Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained? by Karen Markey of the University of Michigan.

Yes, I agree that RDA is rooted in the past and does not meet the needs of the present and the future, because it is designed by librarians who tend to be very unwilling to break with the past.
