Class Description: Learn the basics of conceptual models used in RDA: Resources Description and Access and understand how they are used in cataloging to support discovery. This workshop will review two concepts which we currently use in cataloging: Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD). It will also introduce the new IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM) which is incorporated into the new RDA Toolkit. The workshop emphasizes understanding the practical application of these models in RDA cataloging. It provides cataloging examples in MARC 21 for various formats, with an emphasis on books. Exercises and a resource list for further learning are also included.

A basic understanding of the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data is needed for the course.
