Class Description: Here is your chance to work with RDA (Resource Description and Access) as applied to the original cataloging of digital resources. This hands-on workshop teaches participants how to original catalog digital resources using such tools as the RDA toolkit, and the Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements. The class will address original cataloging in the MARC format. Among the topics discussed will be the chief source of information, physical description, primary access point, and the choice of additional access points. Assignment of subject headings for digital resources will also be discussed.

Participants will learn the appropriate MARC fixed and variable fields for digital resources, and will study the relationships among these fields. 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.

Prerequisites:

  • MARC: An introduction (or working knowledge of MARC)
