Printable course description (.doc)


This workshop on RDA: Resource Description and Access will provide catalogers with a hands-on experience using the RDA Toolkit. The workshop will emphasize getting to know RDA, with a focus on the special aspects of music cataloging, including the creation of name/title authority records. Because we do not know when RDA will be implemented nation-wide, the workshop will focus on what music catalogers need to know about RDA, regardless of when we start using it. The Bibliographic Control Committee, the Education Committee and MOUG offer this full-day workshop, which will feature speakers who have personal experience in developing and/or testing RDA.


John Attig, Penn State University; Kathy Glennan, University of Maryland

Anticipated speakers: selected participants from the MLA/OLAC RDA test partners, someone from the Library of Congress
