The article discusses Resource Description and Access (RDA), which is expected to replace the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd Edition (ACCR2). The former facilitate the process of resource description and is designed to generate records that contain data that is significant to users. It also aims to produce records that will help users get the resources they need. In addition, RDA provides the cataloguer with the conceptual framework with which he can exercise judgment.
