RDA in a Nutshell (Lyrasis) (SWFLN)

This session is part of the LYRASIS second Friday series, a series of workshops providing information about and sharing new ideas and resources for resource sharing, electronic resources, and cataloging.

The likely next edition of cataloging rules, Resource Description and Access (RDA) is dominating discussions of cataloging’s future. For administrators and anyone outside of cataloging but with an interest in it, this session will provide an overview of the essentials of RDA and its relationship to FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records), review the current timeline for RDA implementation in the US, and highlight some differences in cataloging practice RDA would introduce. Catalogers who are just beginning to think about RDA and FRBR will find it a useful introduction as well.

Understand the relationship between RDA and FRBR
Know several prominent differences between an RDA record and a current, AACR2 record
Be aware of the timing of RDA’s likely implementation in the US library community.
