NCSU Libraries is happy to provide open accessibility to our Resource Description & Access (RDA) test 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.).  Please also note that this is a living documentation site for NCSU catalogers and will change and grow as we proceed.  All decisions apply only to the US RDA Test period.  We have set nothing in stone and our RDA documentation is quite a moving target.  NCSU Libraries will make implementation decisions based on testing results and in conjunction with the community nationally.  We are happy for feedback on this site.  Please email Erin Stalberg, Head Metadata & Cataloging, NCSU Libraries.
