Committee on Cataloging: Description & Access
Task Force on Specialist Cataloguing Manuals
August 2, 2007; rev. November 5, 2007
The Task Force on Specialist Cataloguing Manuals is charged with:
- Reviewing the constituency responses to 5JSC/ALA/3 and 5JSC/ALA/3/ALA follow-up
and the minutes of the October 2006 JSC meeting where 5JSC/ALA/3 and 5JSC/ALA/3/ALA follow-up were discussed.
During its review, the Task Force needs to be mindful that the responses were made to a proposal
where the list was to be included within the text of RDA.
- Combining and organizing the resources included in 5JSC/ALA/3, 5JSC/ALA/3/ALA follow-up
and additional lists provided by the JSC.
- Recommending the scope, coverage, and selection criteria for including items on the list of relevant standards
and specialist cataloguing manuals that will be associated with RDA via a wiki, but not included within the text of RDA.
- Identifying the resources on the combined list that are within the scope and coverage
and meet the selection criteria recommended by the Task Force.
Additional relevant points from the constituency responses to 5JSC/ALA/3
and 5JSC/ALA/3/ALA follow-up may be included in the Task Force report to CC:DA.
The report of the Task Force is due to the Chair of CC:DA by Dec. 17, 2007.
ALA is charged with getting the combined list to the JSC by Feb. 1, 2008.
