RDA in 10 Easy Steps
RDA (Resource Description and Access) is the successor to the cataloging rules, AACR2. RDA completely revamps the structure of the cataloging instructions by closely following the entity-relationship model used to construct databases. However, as complex as these changes are, they can be reduced to ten easy steps. Join in on a walkthrough of the new structure. Through a demonstration of how a simple book can be cataloged with RDA, catalogers will have a greater understanding of the new structure and will be able to navigate RDA more easily to find related instructions and instructions for other resources.

Who Should Attend:
Catalogers and technical services staff

Thomas Brenndorfer has been the Technical Services Librarian at the Guelph Public Library, Ontario, Canada, since 1994. He received an MLIS in 1990 from the University of Western Ontario, and, after graduating, worked at the National Library of Canada, Supreme Court of Canada Library, and Canadian Forces College Library in Toronto.
