Resource Description and Access (RDA): Changes for Users and Catalogers. A presentation by Natalia Tomlin.

Resource Description and Access (RDA) launched in 2010 as the successor to Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, Revised, Second Edition (AACR2). The rules of this new cataloging code, as enumerated in the online utility RDA Toolkit, have led to the current period of transition for the cataloging community. RDA represents a shift in cataloging practice aimed to support the digital environment and to improve the user experience by heightening the discoverability of materials and collections. Join Natalia Tomlin, Technical Services Librarian at B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library at LIU Post, for a morning of learning about RDA principles, vocabulary, new content in bibliographic records and resulting changes in OPAC display.  This presentation will be of interest to working catalogers and other Technical Services personnel, as well as Reference Librarians and everyone else who is curious about the changes they see in OPAC records.
