The TMQ Cataloging Series. Series C: RDA


 

RUDIMENTARY RDA

 

Don't panic. RDA is here, it true, but even though LC and a bunch of other libraries have implemented RDA for creating new records, that doesn’t mean that you have to, yet. But it is definitely time for you start learning what this RDA stuff is all about. So, this is a start on learning about the basics (the 'rudiments') of RDA.

 

Course description:

In the course of the workshop, we intend to answer the following questions:

 

Intended audience:

Catalogers and copy catalogers

Anticipated goal:

At the conclusion of this workshop, you should understand the importance of RDA and how it will change the way we catalog, and the ways our catalogs work.

Recommended prerequisites:

As many cataloging workshops as possible, especially the ones in the TMQ cataloging training series

Required text:

None; a handout will be provided

Presenter:

Deborah Fritz

We will explain:

 

Anticipated goal:

At the conclusion of Part 1 of this course, you should know enough about RDA (the replacement for AACR) to be ready for Part 2 of the course.

 

***It is strongly advised that you go through the Part 1 modules before attending Part 2 of this workshop***

Rudimentary RDA. Part 2, How RDA Will Help, What's Different About it, and What we Should do About it Right Now (1 day)

This part of the workshop may be provided as: a one-day, face-to-face, training session at a host site, with an option for broadcasting via GoToMeeting; or a one-day online training session, using GoToMeeting; or an OCLC webinar split over 2, three-hour sessions.

 

Total duration:  approx. 6 hrs

 

Duration—On-site + Online:

 

Duration—Online only:

1 live session (9:00 am - 4:00 pm) —in person (with, optional, broadcast via GoToMeeting)

 

1 live session (9:00 am - 4:00 pm)—online, using GoToMeeting

OR

2 live sessions (3 hrs each) — online, via an OCLC Webinar

We will explain:

·         How RDA is intended to help the users of our OPACs.

·         What are FRBR, WEMI, FISO, and FRAD

·         What is really different about RDA

·         What is the RDA Toolkit

·         What is RIMMF

·         How the Toolkit and RDA-based cataloging software (such as RIMMF) will make it simpler for us to describe and provide access to resources

·         What we should do with RDAMARC records that we copy, to make those records work properly in our OPACs

 

Anticipated goal:

At the conclusion of Part 2 of this course, you should understand how different RDA thinking is from AACRMARC thinking, and how much more 'fun' RDA thinking might be to apply, than simply reading the new instructions would make us think.

RDA/MARC FOR COPY CATS

 

Copy cataloging is becoming somewhat more complicated, as various important creators of MARC records gradually switch from following AACR rules to following RDA instructions for the records they make. RDA/MARC records certainly look different than AACR/MARC records, and so do the Hybrid AACR/MARC records that are also showing up for you to copy. But the good news is that there are some straightforward patterns in the RDA instructions that will help clarify the changes that RDA brings to our copy cataloging process.

 

Course description:

This course outlines the basic principles of applying RDA thinking to copy cataloging MARC records.

 

We will show you:

·         how to recognize RDA/MARC records vs. AACR/MARC records vs. Hybrid AACR/MARC records

·         how to match RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC, and Hybrid AACR/MARC records to the resources you are cataloging, following some simple patterns in RDA thinking

·         how to do basic, essential editing of RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC, and Hybrid AACR/MARC records that you copy, following some additional patterns in RDA thinking.

 

We will also provide practice in the above steps.

 

Intended audience:

Experienced copy catalogers

Anticipated goal:

At the conclusion of all three parts of this workshop, you should be able to copy RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC and Hybrid AACR/MARC records that accurately and correctly describe your resources as per RDA instructions (with an emphasis on books)

STRONGLY recommended prerequisites:

·   MARC21 in Your Library Part 1 and Part 2 and Just for Copy Cats Part 1 and Part 2

·   Or a very good working knowledge of MARC21 and copy cataloging AACR/MARC records

Required text:

None; handouts will be provided

***It is very strongly advised that you go through the Part 1 module and the modules it points to, before attending Part 2 of this workshop***

 

RDA/MARC for Copy Cats. Part 2, Matching (Books)

This part of the workshop can be provided as: a one-day, face-to-face, training session at a host site (with an option for also broadcasting via GoToMeeting); or a one-day online training session; or an OCLC webinar split over two, three-hour sessions.

 

This part of the workshop requires that attendees have individual access to a computer and the internet. We will be accessing the RDA Toolkit (using a temporary training account that we will provide) and a TMQ wiki, containing hints and links. Both of these tools will be needed for the practice portion of the workshop.

 

Duration: approx. 6 hrs

 

Duration—On-site + Online:

 

 

Duration—Online only:

1 live session (9:00 am - 4:00 pm) —in person (with, optional, broadcast via GoToMeeting)

We will explain and practice:

·         How to apply RDA principles, guidelines and patterns to matching the data elements that apply to your resources to the data elements that are provided in RDA/MARC, AACR/MARC, or Hybrid AACR/MARC records that you are hoping to copy.

 

Anticipated goal:

At the conclusion of Part 2 this course, you should know how to compare identifying, carrier, content, and relationship data that you find as elements in a MARC record (including the new RDA/MARC elements) to comparable data that has been provided on a resource that you are cataloging, according to RDA instructions.

 

Note for online attendees: The font size used on some screens in this webinar may not be suitable for viewing using an iPad or small laptop; we recommend that you use as large a monitor as possible, for optimum viewing, and ideally, we recommend that you have the use of two monitors, if at all possible.
