Metadata is going through a massive transformation. The RDA 3R project, BIBFRAME and other linked data standards are changing the ways we provide access to information. How are these changes affecting the way you catalog?
Kicking off the conference is keynote speaker, Kathy Glennan, Chair-Elect of the RDA Steering Committee. Her keynote, Evolution of the RDA Toolkit and Its Impact on Catalogers, will provide information about the external and internal factors that have driven the RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign Project, and will discuss what catalogers need to do to get ready for the new Toolkit.
Following her presentation, are a series of concurrent sessions with several programming options and featuring topics such as, The Community College Perspective: RDA Conversion in a Small Academic Library, Planning for Linked Data, Cartographic Cataloging, What Google can teach us about Cataloging, and more!
Don’t forget, one of the many benefits of Amigos Library Services membership is FREE attendance at all online conferences! If you’re not a member, register by October 26 for discount pricing.
