The OLAC/MLA Joint Task Force on Best Practice Guidelines for Cataloging Playaways has completed its review of the implications of the new RDA rules for Playaway cataloging, based on the latest RDA draft. Playaways are stand-alone, pre-loaded digital audio players, usually used for audiobooks (see http://store.playawaydigital.com/ for more information).
The report, entitled Playaways and RDA: Summary of relevant sections from RDA Chapters 3, 6, and 7, is available at http://www.olacinc.org/drupal/capc_files/PlayawaysAndRDA.pdf or from the OLAC Cataloging Policy Committee publications page.
