Introduction to RDA
Dates: Not currently scheduled
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Resource Description and Access (RDA) will become the official cataloging standard of the Library of Congress on March 31, 2013, and catalogers will want to be prepared to use and implement it. Upon completion of this four-week course you will be familiar with Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records, the conceptual model on which RDA is based. You will be able to recognize and create bibliographic records using RDA and will be directed to the most recent and helpful resources that are available to help guide you through the transition to RDA. We will also discuss the issues surrounding the adoption and implementation of the standard. Basic knowledge of AACR2 and MARC21 are required to take this course.
Contact us to arrange a special session of this class for a group of seven or more, with a negotiable discount.
