Shortly after the Library of Congress’ March 31st implementation date, we will discuss the new cataloging standard, Resource Description & Access (RDA), from a metadata perspective.
This discussion will not focus on how to catalog with RDA, nor address specific changes from AACR2 (watch the blog this and next week for resources that address these topics!). Instead, the goal of this meeting will be to move beyond the micro details of the new standard and to expand into the macro implications that RDA has for the future of library data. How is bibliographic data modeled in RDA? What exactly does RDA promise to deliver? How might RDA transform discovery?
DATE: Tuesday, April 2
TIME: 9:30—10:30 am
PLACE: Wells Library E174
TOPIC: RDA & Future of Library Data
