LRM: A New Foundation for RDA & the RDA Toolkit

$175.00

Dates: February 1 - February 28

Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs

This course focuses on learning the new Library Reference Model (LRM) which is the foundation for the R3 (RDA Toolkit revision) and BIBFRAME 2.0. The LRM is an evolving model that merges the RDA foundational frameworks of RDA, FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records), FRAD (Functional Requirements for Authority Data), and FRSAD (Functional Requirements of Subject Authority Data). The LRM focuses on aligning terminologies with larger data communities of practice, refining the FRBR User Tasks, eliminating inconsistencies between the three models, and embracing linked data practices. This new model brings significant changes in how we think about data, to the RDA Toolkit, and to BIBFRAME.

Course Description

This course focuses on learning the new Library Reference Model (LRM) which is the foundation for the R3 (RDA Toolkit revision) and BIBFRAME 2.0. The LRM is an evolving model that merges the RDA foundational frameworks of RDA, FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records), FRAD (Functional Requirements for Authority Data), and FRSAD (Functional Requirements of Subject Authority Data). The LRM focuses on aligning terminologies with larger data communities of practice, refining the FRBR User Tasks, eliminating inconsistencies between the three models, and embracing linked data practices. This new model brings significant changes in how we think about data, to the RDA Toolkit, and to BIBFRAME.

Students will become familiar with LRM, understand changes in terminologies, especially for authorities and subjects, and well as build critical cataloging knowledge for understanding RDA going forward.

Students will compare mappings between FRBR, FRAD, and FRSAD to LRM, explore the impact of changes to cataloging brought forward by the LRM including on authorities and multipart items such as serials, review different approaches to cataloging following LRM, including BIBFRAME and traditional MARC cataloging.

Course Objectives and Goals

By the end of the course students will:

  • Understand the shift from 3 foundations (FRBR, FRAD, FRSAD) to LRM
  • Develop a firm grasp on new terminologies and hierarchies in the LRM
  • Practice analysis and critical thinking on the impact of the LRM on current cataloging practices, including authorities and multipart items such as serials
  • Develop a firm understanding of the LRM and its relationship to RDA and the future of cataloging
  • Understand the correlation between the RDA Toolkit (R3) to LRM

This is an asynchronous course with built-in course materials and series of weekly assignments. Some course materials may be recorded.

This course can be taken as one of eight courses needed to earn our Certificate in Cataloging and Technical Services, but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
