RDA basics to get you started
Resource Description and Access (RDA), first implemented in 2013, introduced several changes to descriptive cataloging guidelines. Whereas many libraries were early adopters of RDA, there are still libraries who have not yet adopted RDA or have not adopted it fully. If your library has not yet adopted RDA, or if your library has adopted RDA, but you are feeling overwhelmed with the task of keeping up with the changes to RDA, this presentation will help bring you up-to-date. The presenters will cover changes to several fields, including main entry, title and statement of responsibility, publication information, physical description, and the new 33X fields. In addition, presenters will suggest some beneficial freely available resources to aid in understanding and accessing RDA. An overview of recent changes to RDA, MARC, and BIBFRAME will also be discussed.
