RDA for the Non-Cataloger: What’s In It For You?
Many libraries will be implementing RDA (Resource Description & Access) early in 2013. What will this mean for technical services and other library staff? How are RDA records different from AACR2 records? This webinar will provide a general overview of the changes in RDA, particularly those affecting staff in technical services and those noticeable in the OPAC. No knowledge of current cataloging standards or MARC required! While this webinar will not teach how to catalog with RDA, it will be a useful foundation for catalogers new to RDA as well as as other library staff and administrators.

Who Should Attend:
Technical services staff, public services staff, administrators
