Course Objectives:

RDA: Resource Description & Access was published in June 2010 and has been undergoing a test by the U.S. national libraries and others. This webcast uses numerous side-by-side examples in MARC format to show the most significant changes between AACR2 and RDA cataloging practices. Part 1 covers descriptive elements, and part 2 covers access points.

The sessions are aimed at catalogers familiar with AACR2 who want to learn more about how RDA records will differ from records created under AACR2 rules. They assume a familiarity with the MARC 21 bibliographic and authority formats, and with FRBR.
