This Working Group has functioned as an advisory group to the Representative from AALL to CCDA, ALA's Committee on Cataloging: Description and Access. John Hostage, our representative, has been heavily involved in reviewing and commenting on the draft of the new cataloging rules. We will review the work of the group this past year and learn what lies ahead as RDA nears completion.
