RDA for Copy Catalogers

This session provides a basic orientation to Resource Description and Access (RDA) for copy catalogers and gives them tools to interpret records in WorldCat. The focus will be on identifying RDA records and understanding the new fields and practices that differ from AACR2 so that copy catalogers can select bibliographic records and edit them appropriately. Examples will include RDA records and “hybrid” records in various formats, with an emphasis on resources collected by public libraries.
