Here is your chance to work with RDA (Resource Description and Access) as applied to the copy cataloging of digital resources. This hands-on workshop teaches participants how to catalog digital resources using such tools as the RDA toolkit and the Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements. All forms of digital resources, as well as physical media, including video games, CD-ROMs and other computer disks will be discussed. The class will address copy cataloging in the MARC format. Among the topics covered will be the chief source of information, physical description, primary access point, and the choice of additional access points. Assignment of subject headings, classification and access point control will also be discussed.
Participants will learn the appropriate MARC fixed and variable fields for digital resources, and will study the relationships among these fields. Several MARC record examples will be examined and a number of hands-on copy cataloging exercises will be included. The booklet for this workshop contains an RDA Workflow providing the relevant RDA rules, the Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements and MARC coding information. The OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards will also be used.
PLEASE NOTE: Basic navigation in the RDA Toolkit will NOT be covered. You will need to attend Copy Cataloging of Monographs Using RDA prior to attending this program.
This class will be held online. All registered attendees will receive an email with login information a few days prior to the class date.
