ASTED and ALA Publishing reach agreement on French translation

ALA Publishing has signed an agreement with ASTED (Association pour l’avancement des sciences et des techniques de la documentation) in which the Montreal-based publisher is responsible for the translation of the French-language version of the new set of cataloguing standards for print and digital media in libraries and beyond, RDA: Resource Description and Access. ASTED is also licensed to publish and globally distribute the print version of the French translation of RDA.

The French translation will eventually be available online through the subscription site RDA Toolkit.
