This study is to analyze the characteristics of 2019 revised RDA and suggest the consideration in aspects of cataloging using the literature reviews. The following 3 things are suggested with analyzing the revised RDA. First, high quality data such as supplementing cataloging data and constructing vocabulary encoding schemes should be needed to transform bibliographic data to linked data for the semantic web. Second, MARC should be expanded to accept the new conept of LRM and linked data being reflected in revised RDA because MARC is the unique encoding format untile linked data will be transformed from MARC data. Third, the policy statement and the application profile are needed for describing resource consistently because each entity and element has own condition and option, and there are different elements for applying rules in revised RDA. Based on this study, the RDA related researches should be in progress such as exapanding BIBFRAME as well as MARC to accept the new concepts in revised RDA, and, also, reflecting and accepting RDA being able to use revised RDA rules and registries in libraries and nations that have been faced to revise their own cataloging rules.
