Getting social? RDA Resources on Pinterest

Flow chart with the title, Resource Description & Access: a primer

Do you like browsing for information via Pinterest? A group (which individuals may request to join) is managing a Resource Description & Access (RDA) social media board on Pinterest. There don’t seem to be many people contributing to the board yet, so most of the content originates from one or two websites/blogs.

I wonder whether the visual-bias of Pinterest is well-suited for revealing discussions about RDA, in which content is typically delivered textually. Discussion of RDA–and our knowledge of information organization in general–may be enriched by visualizations that help contextualize the use of this content standard within the broader metadata landscape.
