RSC Meeting, 2 August: Agenda, papers, information for observers

As the Public Session of our meeting approaches on 2 August, we have just shared the following courtesy email to RDA-L, the discussion list for RDA.

Dear all

This is a courtesy reminder that the next public meeting of the RDA Steering Committee takes place online on Wednesday 2 August, and you are most welcome to attend as an observer.

The meeting includes discussion of the Religions in RDA Working Group's proposal, RSC/ReligionsWG/2023/1 - Religious Titles and the Official Languages Working Group's proposal, RSC/LanguagesWG/2023/1 - Preferred names and official languages of corporate bodies, governments, and places in RDA. We are also happy to welcome Pat Riva as an invited participant to discuss, with RSC Chair Renate Behrens, the progress of the RSC's protocol with the IFLA Advisory Committee on Standards. The Chair of the Technical Working Group, Damian Iseminger, will also launch a survey to take stock of current RDA community usage of soft-deprecated terms. You can see the Public Session on page 3 of the agenda for the July Meeting of the RSC.

If you would like to be added to the list of online observers, please send an email with subject line RSC OBSERVERS' LIST to Anne Welsh, RSC Secretary, We will be sending out joining instructions later this week, and again for late registrants on 1 August 2023. A video / audio recording of the Zoom meeting will not be available. However, written minutes will be published as soon as possible after 2 August.

We do not like to bombard RDA-L with RSC news, so send only information we think will be of particular interest this way. However, if you are keen for more, the most comprehensive way to keep up with our news is via our website at News and Announcements |

Kindest best wishes,


Anne Welsh
