Availability: Seats Available

* Required Fields



This workshop teaches participants how to do original cataloging of physical sound recordings (CDs, MP3s and cassettes, both musical and nonmusical), using such tools as RDA and OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards. The class will address original cataloging in the MARC format. The instruction will cover issues like the preferred source of information, physical description, authorized access point, content/media/carrier types, and choice of additional access points. In addition, participants will learn the MARC fixed and variable fields for sound recordings, and will study the relationships among these fields. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and three hands-on exercises will be included. The online versions of the RDA Toolkit and OCLC's 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 Original 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.
