Class Description: Here is your chance to work with RDA (Resource Description and Access) as applied to the original cataloging of archival materials. This hands-on workshop teaches participants how to catalog resources in an archival collection using such tools as the RDA Toolkit, the Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements, and Library of Congress Subject Headings Manual. The class will address original cataloging of all forms of archives. Among the topics discussed will be the chief source of information, physical description, primary access point, and the choice of additional access points. Participants will learn the appropriate MARC fixed and variable fields for archives records and will study the relationships among these fields. Assignment of subject headings for archives will also be discussed. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and a number of hands-on exercises will be included. The booklet for this workshop contains an RDA Workflow providing the relevant RDA rules, the Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements, and MARC coding information. The OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards will also be used.
NOTE: Basic navigation in the RDA Toolkit will NOT be covered.
