RDA 4 Everyone is a day-long, multi-type library conference centered on the much-debated, long-awaited new cataloging standard, Resource Description and Access.  And, guess what?  It’s not just about new MARC record fields. And, it impacts more than just your materials-processing workflow.  


RDA represents a revolution in how libraries think about documenting AND accessing the resources we provide for users--and OHIONET is here to help!





Keynote Speaker--Ted Fons, OCLC

Ted holds the title Executive Director for Data Services and WorldCat Quality Management at OCLC and will be speaking to attendees about the power and promise of shared data, how we manage and share information about our collections, and ways to make our resources more visible (and more accessible) to the world.

Ted’s talk, “Library Collections: Exploring, Sharing, Magnifying--a Metadata Strategy,” will explore the challenges and benefits of moving from the traditional record-based metadata environment to metadata management in the web of data and will focus on trends in entity-based data management and benefits across all library workflows.




Our goal is to take the RDA conversation beyond the cataloging community to include sessions on how RDA is being implemented across the library landscape: from tech services to public services, from department managers to front-line staff.

  • Our day of learning and discussion starts at 9 AM, including a light breakfast.

  • The welcoming remarks and our keynote will kick-off at 10 AM.

  • Three sets of breakout sessions--and a buffet lunch--will follow.
