Since the Library of Congress and other National Libraries adopted RDA (Resources Description and Access) three years ago, more and more libraries are using this new content standard to catalog library materials. Cataloging consultant Dodie Gaudet presents a full-day workshop to give participants a chance to practice using RDA to catalog books, sound recordings (music and spoken word), videorecordings and other items. We will begin with some history, a comparison with AACR2 (Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition) in use since 1978, and a discussion of FRBR (Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Records) on which RDA is based. There will be plenty of examples, but feel free to bring your own challenging materials that we can work on as a group.

This workshop includes a 1 hour lunch break please bring a brown bag lunch with you.
