Café de RDA


Served All Day7 Days a Week!

Serving Resource Description and Access Since 2005
Mmmm… Now doesn’t that sound tasty!

A Short History
The Café de RDA had its humble beginning in 1967 when the Anglo-American Cataloging Code was first published. When the restaurant first opened its doors it was a booming success. Of course it needed revisions over the years, with the two main improvements happening in 1988 and 1998. In 2002, as the third major revision approached, the owners wondered if the restaurant needed a major overhaul. They began to think about a new approach to how their restaurant business was structured and looked to a new mode of organizing their information. The new model that caught their eye, the FRBR, was designed with the user in mind and provided more information to their customers than ever before, including translations and digital formats. In 2008, the first draft of the Resource Description and Access code was published and the owners are currently working with a Joint Steering Committee to work out all the kinks of a new restaurant operation. Since the RDA format is still in the testing stages, Café de RDA is asking our guests for feedback on how they feel the new restaurant organization is doing. Please enjoy your meals and we thank you for being our guests today! The official expected release date is November 2009!
