Topic: Essentials of RDA for Non-Catalogers


RDA (Resource Description and Access) has become a reality for many libraries, especially following the Library of Congress' implementation in 2013. But how does it affect non-catalogers and library users? RDA is part of the ongoing transformation of library data, with an objective of responsiveness to user needs. This session will cover the major differences between AACR2 practices and RDA, focusing on how RDA affects display and navigation in local catalogs, WorldCat, and elsewhere.
