RDA/MARC for Copy Cats (Live Online - 2 days) - 0214

Event Description

This two-day online course will be held on Tuesday-Wednesday, February 25-26, 2014 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Students must attend both sessions.

Copy cataloging is becoming somewhat more complicated, as various important creators of MARC records gradually switch from following AACR rules to following RDA instructions for the records they make. RDA/MARC records certainly look different than AACR/MARC records, and so do the Hybrid AACR/MARC records that are also showing up for you to copy. But the good news is that there are some straightforward patterns in the RDA instructions that will help clarify the changes that RDA brings to our copy cataloging process.

This course outlines the basic principles of applying RDA thinking to copy cataloging MARC records.

We will show you and provide practice in:

  • how to recognize RDA/MARC records vs. AACR/MARC records vs. Hybrid AACR/MARC records
  • how to match RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC, and Hybrid AACR/MARC records to the resources you are cataloging, following some simple patterns in RDA thinking
  • how to do basic, essential editing of RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC, and Hybrid AACR/MARC records that you copy, following some additional patterns in RDA thinking

Day 1: Matching (Books)

We will explain and practice how to apply RDA principles, guidelines and patterns to matching the data elements that apply to your resources to the data elements that are provided in RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC, or Hybrid AACR/MARC records that you are hoping to copy.

Day 2: Editing (Books)

We will explain and practice how to apply RDA principles, guidelines and patterns to editing the RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC, or Hybrid AACR/MARC records that you are copying.

Intended audience: Experienced copy catalogers. Attendees should have a very good working knowledge of MARC21 and copy cataloging AACR/MARC records.

Anticipated goal: At the conclusion of this workshop, you should be able to copy RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC and Hybrid AACR/MARC records that accurately and correctly describe your resources as per RDA instructions (with an emphasis on books)
Prerequisites: It is strongly recommended that attendees complete RDA/MARC for Copy Cats. Part 1, Background Material (a free, self-paced online webcast) before attending this workshop.

This webinar will be delivered via GotoMeeting. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.
