The alignment is too large to display on this page. Please use a download to view the alignment.


The alignment is given in a comma-separated variable (csv) format.

An element that is soft-deprecated is one that is redundant with a recording method of another element or that is considered to be an unnecessary refinement of another element.

These elements are considered as official elements of RDA and may still be used to describe RDA entities. These elements will be reviewed in the near-future by the RSC Technical Working Group to determine whether the elements will be retained or be permanently deprecated.
