Cataloging the Especially Special Formats Using RDA and MARC21

Southern California Technical Processes Group presents

Cataloging the Especially special Formats Using RDA and MARC 21

This full-day workshop will focus on the RDA description of special formats–all the materials you may have pushed aside to age, hoping for a record to appear! (Most libraries have these resources lurking in their cataloging departments …)

The presenters will focus on materials such as videorecordings, sound recordings, 3-dimensional objects, pictures, games, kits, and other especially special formats.

Attendees will participate in hands-on exercises which will include use of tools and documentation in support of cataloging with RDA. Access to the online RDA Toolkit will be demonstrated and handouts will be emailed to registrants. The workshop will assume a basic knowledge of cataloging with AACR2 and MARC. A rudimentary knowledge of RDA would be helpful but we are here to help you learn about RDA!
