Jan'15: Advanced Name Authority Records: Corporate Bodies (FDLP)

Thursday, January 15, 2015 / 2:00 pm Eastern Time

Join Marty as he builds on his previous webinar, “Name Authority Records in RDA,” to demonstrate the creation and modification of name authority records for U.S. Government corporate bodies. Along the way, Marty will highlight principles underlying the Resource Description and Access (RDA) cataloging standard, principles which determine the data that is recorded. In addition, Marty will explain the reasoning that guides some of the research conducted as part of corporate name authority work. This presentation also builds on the previous GPO webinar, “An Overview of RDA and Its Implementation at GPO.”

GPO’s Bibliographic and Metadata Section has been creating and modifying name authority records for library catalogs since 1977. GPO is the expert on corporate body records for U.S. Government agencies and bureaus and also creates and modifies authority records for non-governmental corporate bodies, persons, places, series, laws, and treaties.
