The RDA standard remains in a transition period. The theoretical structure of the RDA standard, initially designed to work with the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model, has been superseded by to the Library Reference Model (LRM). This change took place because the LRM has been redesigned to be more flexible in linked data environments and to support and promote the use of bibliographic data in linked data environments. For working catalogers, who use the RDA Toolkit, RDA has completed the RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign Project (3R Project) to rewrite the standard. The legacy RDA Toolkit interface has also been retained for the time being. This presentation will discuss some of the new concepts of the LRM being introduced into RDA. It will try and clarify some of the new vocabulary emerging from the RDA restructure and redesign. It will also touch on potential application profiles, around which tools for using RDA with linked data are being developed. And, the presentation will look at the issue of how education and training for RDA is being presented, asking questions about how well the cataloging community is being prepared for the transition to a linked data workflow.
