This introductory webcast on the proposed cataloging rules, Resource Description and Access (RDA), highlights the critical differences between the current cataloging rules (AACR2) and RDA. It is designed as a primer for both front-line catalogers and library administrators in all types of libraries who need to learn how bibliographic and authority records will change when RDA is implemented. The session would be an excellent introduction to record changes for both original catalogers and copy catalogers.
Note: This session does not cover the elements of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Data (FRBR) on which RDA is based nor does it demonstrate the RDA Toolkit interface.
