Description

Details

Here is your chance to work with RDA (Resource Description and Access) while learning the fundamentals of copy cataloging of monographs. In this hands-on workshop, you will explore the foundations behind RDA, and use the tools included in the RDA Toolkit.

This workshop will cover the essentials of copy cataloging, key MARC tags, basic access point control and why it is important, and where to find good MARC records. Among the topics discussed will be the chief source of information, physical description, primary access point, and the choice of additional access points. Participants will learn the appropriate MARC fixed and variable fields for books 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: This is a general copy cataloging course and questions regarding specific local systems will NOT be covered.

This class will be held online. All registered attendees will receive an email with login information a few days prior to the class date.
