National Library of China Publishing and ALA Publishing reach agreement on Chinese language RDA

ALA Publishing and National Library of China Publishing House have made an agreement for the translation of RDA: Resource Description and Access into the Chinese (Mandarin) language. The National Library of China Publishing House will translate and publish a print version of RDA in Mandarin and distribute it in China and globally. The translation effort by the National Library of China Publishing House is primarily focused on providing RDA in print to a wider audience for further research of the new standard and evaluating its viability for use in Chinese libraries.
