    The Library of Congress over the next couple of months will revisit the Library of Congress Policy Statements for RDA and update them in collaboration with the Program for Cooperative Cataloging, based on findings from the US RDA Test. The LCPSs are available freely on LC’s Web site and through the RDA Toolkit (no subscription to the RDA Toolkit is needed to access the LCPSs through that system).
