Fundamentals of Cataloging--our popular, long-running series of online training sessions, will start off the new year by revisiting the basics. The first set of sessions in the series explains basic cataloging concepts and processes for copy catalogers and demonstrates how to describe our most numerous resource--books! Each session includes dedicated practice and searching time, brief quizzes, and other learning engagement opportunities. Perfect for anyone who is new to copy cataloging or returning to cataloging responsibilities!
This third session in the Introduction series will focus on discussing the key differences in cataloging vocabulary and workflows brought about by the new cataloging standard--RDA (Resource Description and Access). Through this session, attendees will have the opportunity to...
- discuss the changes RDA has brought to the records we are importing
- identify RDA and hybrid records in MARC format
