RDA Cataloging on Google+

There is a Google+ Community for RDA Cataloging, a place to share ideas. For example, currently there is a template for a corporate body name.
RDA Cataloging is an online community/group/forum for library and information science students, professionals and cataloging & metadata librarians. It is a place where people can get together to share ideas, trade tips and tricks, share resources, get the latest news, and learn about Resource Description and Access (RDA), a new cataloging standard to replace AACR2
