Tēnā koutou, e ngā rangatira

Ka nui ngā mihi ki a koutou i runga anō i ngā tini āhuatanga o te wā. Kei te huri te ao whakarārangi pukapuka, nō reira, me panoni hoki ngā ture whakarārangi pukapuka. Nō reira, me kimi ka tika te RSC i ngā whakaaro o ngā iwi taketake o te ao.

The international RDA (Resource Description and Access) cataloguing rules are undergoing some significant changes in order to reflect changing metadata standards and the shift towards linked data. The RDA Steering Committee (RSC) is seeking input from indigenous cataloguers around the world to help identify and eliminate areas of Western bias within the language and conceptual structure of the draft rules.

We would love to hear from cataloguers who identify as Māori, Pasifika, or other indigenous affiliation, and who would be interested in contributing to this work. Please contact ORDAC representative Chris Todd at  Chris.Todd at wcc.govt.nz<mailto:Chris.Todd at wcc.govt.nz> for more information.

For more information about the new rules, the underlying model (the IFLA LRM) and the RSC, please see:

Kāore e kume roatia te korero, nō reira, noho ora mai

Nā mātou noa
