CC:DA Report from the 2013 ALA Midwinter Conference – Seattle, WA

This is a report on the highlights of ALA's ALCTS/CaMMS Committee on Cataloging: Description and Access (CC:DA) during the Midwinter conference in Seattle, January 2013. The full agenda is available here: Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.

Highlights for me were the demonstration of RDA In Many Metadata Formats (RIMMF), the authorization to create two new Task Forces (on both of which I hope to include ARLIS/NA representation), and my report to CC:DA on the recent discussions of ARLIS/NA's CAC and friends about art cataloging issues raised by RDA (see email issued separately to ARLIS-L).
