RIMMF4 (R4) is an attempt to model changes to RDA introduced by the LRM and 3R project.

Work on R4 began in 2017/2018 and is ongoing.

The objectives/status of RIMMF4 are:

  • replace the homegrown text output used by previous RIMMFs with an RDF serialization [complete]
  • replace customized element tables with direct downloads from RDA Registry [complete]
  • support new concepts: recording methods, polyhierarchical subproperties, nomens, machine-readable SES [in progress]
  • demonstrate data provenance using RDA itself [work started]

RIMMF4 does not at present have any awareness of MARC.
For MARC-to-RDA and RDA-to-MARC conversion RIMMF3 may be useful 1).
