Mon Feb 7 14:04:28 PST 2011
The OLA conference in Salem April 6-8 will provide several opportunities
to learn more about RDA (Resource Description and Access), the new
cataloging standard that may replace AACR2 in the near future. There's
something for everyone -- some sessions are aimed at catalogers, but one
is for a general audience.
Preconference: RDA 101 (April 6)
The all-day preconference is a workshop for catalogers. In the morning,
Adam Schiff will give a presentation on differences between AACR2 and
RDA. In the afternoon, several speakers will describe the changes for
particular formats: moving images (Kelley McGrath), serials and ebooks
(Renette Davis), and music (Cathy Gerhart). The day will wrap up with a
panel of people who have participated in the US RDA test, discussing
their experiences as testers, and an update on the RDA Toolkit.
