RDA: Resource Description and Access is the new cataloging standard that is replacing the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR). The March 2013 full implementation by Library of Congress and other national libraries is coming up fast, and libraries are working intensively to familiarize staff, whether they’re going to be simply interacting with records created using RDA or doing original cataloging themselves. In this workshop, Chris Oliver, author of the best-selling Introducing RDA, will give an overview of RDA and look at the key aspects that make RDA different from AACR2. The workshop is designed to provide background for catalogers before they begin RDA training but will also serve as a refresher for those wanting to brush up on their understanding of RDA.

Topics include:
Organization of RDA and its key attributes
Similarities and differences between RDA and AACR2
Basic vocabulary and reasons for the changes
Improving resource description and resource discovery
