Class Description: Here is your chance to work with RDA (Resource Description and Access) while learning the fundamentals of original cataloging of monographs. In this hands-on workshop, you will explore the foundations behind RDA, and use the tools included in the RDA Toolkit. How to assign subject headings and basic access point control will also be reviewed. Among the topics discussed will be the chief source of information, physical description, primary access point, and the choice of additional access points. 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 (LC-PCC PS) and MARC coding information. The OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards will also be used. Note: This is a general original cataloging course and questions regarding specific local systems will not be covered.
