Comunicado de la BNE en relación a RDA. Biblioteca Nacional de España

En estos momentos, RDA está presente en las principales bibliotecas del mundo, sobre todo del ámbito anglosajón, así como en varias bibliotecas nacionales europeas. Además, teniendo en cuenta que es la continuación natural de AACR2, es de suponer que se implante de forma generalizada en el mundo hispanoamericano. Su presencia, por tanto, será cada vez más importante en el ámbito de los grandes catálogos colectivos, como OCLC, y en servicios de información bibliográfica suministrados por editores y otras plataformas relacionadas.
