Dublin Core and RDA - Posting on testing with links

Posted to the NGC4LIB discussion list on January 2, 2009

"The DCMI/RDA Task Group has been doing some testing of RDA data since last fall, based on several cataloging scenarios we developed with members of the community, using what we then knew about the RDA element set and roles vocabulary. The scenarios and testing are available at: The site also includes use cases, developer scenarios, etc. We're happy to have the testing group use as much of these as are useful.

As I'm sure you are aware, the RDA elements, roles and selected vocabularies are available on the NSDL Registry (, and they can be used by anyone. I'm happy to answer any questions about what's there, decisions that have been made about registration, what's missing, etc. Most of the work of registration and the wiki scenarios has been done with the help of Karen Coyle. Both of us are happy to be available to the testing group at any point.
