From the Introduction

The success of the Recommended Formats Statement (RFS) since it was first launched in 2014 and the way in which it has become such an important tool for the community has encouraged the Library of Congress to improve the standard annual review process through which it aims to keep the RFS current and relevant. Now with each annual revision, the Library engages in a more thorough examination, both of the organizational structure of the RFS and of the processes through which each year’s version is revised. This has resulted in the addition of Email as the latest category in the RFS, along with significant updates to the Datasets category.
