Face-to-Face RDA Training Scheduled for Columbia, MO
Both the Library of Congress (LC) and U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) have announced they are moving forward with full implementation of Resource Description and Access (RDA) on March 31, 2013. Now that implementation is around the corner, is your library ready for RDA?
To help you get ready for RDA, Amigos has scheduled a face-to-face training session, Cataloging with RDA, at the University of Missouri (Columbia, MO) on December 11, 2012. Topics covered include: a FRBR review; RDA Core elements for description, preferred titles and names; changes from AACR2; articulating relationships between resources and entities; RDA Toolkit functionality; using workflows and mappings to catalog materials with RDA. Through exercises and hands-on cataloging experiences, participants will receive a thorough grounding in RDA. Visit the Amigos web site for a complete description and online registration.
