Ayman Mohamed El Masry

Vice director of serials section in Library of Congress Cairo

 

 

As a result of more than seven years of building new cataloging rules; RDA produced to satisfy all parties! RDA did not satisfy expectations of many catalogers because they tried to satisfy all parties and forgot the main goal of building real new rules. The paper discusses new changes in rules related to serials which is zero. According to the definition of the term “rules” RDA added no changes to serials cataloging rules, and just few rules to monographs.
