NCompass Live: Resource Description and What? RDA for Non-Catalogers

NCompass live smallJoin us for next week’s NCompass Live: “Resource Description and What? RDA for Non-Catalogers”, on Wednesday, September 3, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Have you heard the catalogers in your library mumbling about RDA, FRBR, and other mysterious acronyms? Would you like to find how recent cataloging changes could affect you? Resource Description & Access (RDA) is the new cataloging code that replaced AACR2 early in 2013, and in this session, Emily Nimsakont, the NLC’s Cataloging Librarian, will provide a translation of “cataloger-ese” to explain what RDA is. She will also discuss how the new cataloging rules will affect libraries’ OPACs, non-cataloging library staff, and library patrons.
