NTS:: RDA (Important Library Stuff)

Hmmm... it did look like RDA might be the sort of thing I was wanting... supposed to have the granularity I'd like, but just seeing the draft documents makes me just balk.

Once you download the zip file, and see the size of the pdfs, you realise how much work has been done, (a lot), but also how much work is involved in implementing it. Not being a cataloguer, getting my head around this would take too long, so I'm probably going to soften it, and go with something similar, but easier.

My grand plan, (which is all it is at this stage - whether it gets to be anything more is dubious), would be a central repository for the tags, and how they translate... whether this would be a networked thing remains to be seen.
