These posts are meant to be a brief introduction and are not intended to be exhaustive treatments of the topic. If you have other resources you’d like to share, please leave a comment!

Electronic Resources

Ebooks

CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs

I haven’t seen any best practices documents produced by national standards bodies that address this particular format (yet).

Next meeting: RDA & the future of library data

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

Save the date: RDA discussion at April 2 meeting

The Library of Congress’ official RDA implementation date is March 31st! At the next meeting of the Metadata Discussion Group, we will discuss the new cataloging standard, Resource Description & Access (RDA), from a metadata perspective.

This discussion will not give an overview of how to catalog with RDA, nor address the changes from AACR2, nor deliberate how RDA might be implemented for different resource formats (keep an eye on the blog next week for a series of posts 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 differently 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 & the Future of Library Data

Resources to consider consulting for this meeting will be posted early next week.

Note: this high-level discussion of RDA should be a good lead-in to the topic for our final meeting of the year on April 30: next-generation discovery layers.
