[Main article: Resource Description and Access https://librarianshipstudies.blogspot.com/2017/07/resource-description-and-access.html]
=> RDA builds on the strengths of AACR2 but has some new features that make it more useful for description as a cataloging code for the digital environment in which libraries now operate.
=> RDA is better at catering for digital resources and for resources with multiple characteristics and will provide more guidance on the creation of authority headings.
=> RDA has been developed with the end-user in mind.
=> RDA provides a consistent, flexible and extensible framework for the description of all types of resources, including digital resources and those with multiple characteristics.
RDA is compatible with internationally established principles, models, and standards.
