ACOC Draft Responses to JSC Proposals

 

Draft responses to the following proposals were endorsed

6JSC/ALA/17

6JSC/ISSN/2

 

Further amendment required for the following drafts:

6JSC/ALA/20

Response to be revised to clarify ACOC’s position regarding the ambiguous wording in Recommendation 3

 

6JSC/BL/9

The response indicates ACOC’s general support of the proposal, but some re-wording indicating wider issues needs to be made.

JSC Proposals

The following proposals were discussed and assigned to ACOC members to respond

 

6JSC/ALA/12

ACOC generally supports the intent of this proposal but has concerns with some of the proposed new wording, in particular:

  • “for selection” it is not clear what this refers to
  • “instead of or in addition to...” this is inconsistent with the rest of RDA

6JSC/ALA/14

ACOC supports this proposal but has concerns regarding the proposed additional examples and the use of terminology “traditional”

 

6JSC/CCC/7

ACOC supports this proposal.  It was noted that the proposed revision is a big change from the original instructions and therefore if supported by JSC they should be prioritised.

 

6JSC/EURIG/4

ACOC supports this proposal.  Clarification will be sought on recording of composer names, as the proposed examples show surnames only.  ACOC suggests re-wording of the term “useless” to “redundant” in the alternative instruction

 

The following proposals were supported as they stand

6JSC/CCC/8

6JSC/CCC/9

 

The following proposals are to be discussed at the next teleconference

6JSC/EURIG/1

6JSC/IAML/1

Other proposals to be discussed

ISSN/1 (to revisit following LC response)

ISSN/2
