Introducing RDA 1: Structure, Principles and Core Elements (Live Online)

Event Description

This two-hour live online class provides an introduction to RDA (Resource Description and Access), the proposed next edition of cataloging rules to replace AACR2 (the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd ed.). We’ll look at how RDA’s rules are structured, its basis in the Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Records (FRBR), its overarching principles (such as “transcribe what you see”), and the data elements it specifies as core to a bibliographic record.

The online RDA Toolkit will not be utilized in this class, which focuses on RDA’s content and not the functionality of the online tool.

By the end of the class, students will be comfortable with:

  • the organization of RDA along FRBR lines
  • its basic principles under which catalogers are to work
  • RDA’s core data elements

Prerequisites: The March 4-5 Understanding FRBR for RDA and Beyond course or knowledge of the FRBR bibliographic entities work, expression, manifestation and item.

This class will be held in the Lyrasis Adobe Connect meeting room. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.

Presented by: Christee Pascale, Lyrasis
