RDA in 10 Easy Steps
November 7, 2012
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Description: RDA (Resource Description and Access) is the successor to the cataloging rules, AACR2. RDA completely revamps the structure of the cataloging instructions by closely following the entity-relationship model used to construct databases. However, as complex as these changes are, they can be reduced to ten easy steps. Join in on a walk through of the new structure. A demonstration of how a simple book can be cataloged with RDA helps catalogers understand the new structure and makes it easier to navigate RDA and find related instructions for other resources.
Who should attend? Catalogers and technical services staff
Presenter: Thomas Brenndorfer has been the Technical Services Librarian at the Guelph Public Library, Ontario, Canada, since 1994.
