abstract
In recent years, e-book managers and other librarians have posed many questions about RDA, the new cataloging code. RDA provides a necessary foundation for building better data structures that will change the capabilities of future cataloging systems. It is a code that was created to be compatible with digital catalogs and digital resources, as well as traditional, non-digital materials. RDA may also provide a necessary step toward integrating library resources with the much-heralded Semantic Web.
