NOTE: The RDA test period is over and this documentation is in the process of being archived. As such, you may encounter missing content or broken links.

NCSU Libraries is happy to provide open accessibility to our Resource Description & Access (RDA) materials. While our goal is to make as many materials as open as possible, visitors should note that they may find occasional pages restricted throughout this site (logins, staff information, etc.). Most decisions applied to the US RDA Test period., we've indicated updated policy and procedure where needed. We are happy for feedback on this site.  Please email Christee Pascale, Associate Head, Acquisitions & Discovery or Charley Pennell, Principal Cataloger, NCSU Libraries.
