Judy Kuhagen has taken on new responsibilities with the RDA Steering Committee also effective April 20, when she formally began her role as 3R Project Consultant. Judy's expert knowledge of RDA is a tremendous asset to the project, which will restructure RDA instructions using the IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM) as its foundation. Her tasks will include reviewing, updating, and preparing RDA content to bring it in line with LRM principles and structure, as well as advising the RSC on RDA structure, consistency, and maintenance. Judy will remain a key member of the core team, which has taken the lead in finding an efficient and effective working method for the restructure process. We are very grateful that Judy is willing to continue to work with the RSC after having served as Secretary since 2012.
