This workbook comprehensively covers the process of descriptive cataloging, using Resource Description and Access (RDA) and the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format. It is suitable as a text for cataloging students and as an introduction to new cataloging guidelines for experienced practitioners transitioning to RDA
This book provides a snapshot of the implementation in various countries around the world of the international cataloging standard RDA: resource description and access. All stages of implementing a new standard are covered, from initial assessment and impact analysis through translation, staff training, and data migration, to implementation and user orientation. Contributions include the results of detailed research into awareness of the standard in professional groups, differences between catalog metadata produced using RDA and current local standards, and the effect of RDA on the presentation of catalog displays to the end user. The contributions cover aspects of RDA implementation in Canada, China, German-speaking countries, Iran, Israel, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore, and Turkey, and French, German and Spanish translation activity. The information contained will be relevant for many years to come, for those who are intending to implement RDA, review the quality of legacy data, measure the impact of the globalization of cataloguing data, or prepare for education and orientation in international bibliographic standards. This book was published as a special double issue of Cataloging and Classification Quarterly.
Whether you're a practicing cataloger looking for a short text to update you on the application of RDA to cataloging records or a school librarian who needs a quick resource to answer cataloging questions, this guide is for you. • Thoroughly updates a best-selling, essential guide to cataloging • Addresses the new standards specifically as they apply to school libraries • Helps school librarians understand and implement the new cataloging standards in their collections • Distills the latest information and presents it in a format that is clear and accessible • Fills the need for up-to-the-minute cataloging guidance for the busy librarian who wants information in a hurry
Making the Move to RDA: A Self-Study Primer for Catalogers is aimed at MARC catalogers who currently create AACR2 records and need to transition to the new Resource Description and Access (RDA) environment. Since both RDA’s structure and content differ from AACR2 in many respects, this primer will first detail the development and rationale for RDA as well as its intended goals, principles, and objectives. It will then explain RDA’s theoretical underpinnings—collectively known as the FRBR Family of Models.
