Relationship Designators in RDA: Connecting the Dots

One of the most important features of RDA is its emphasis on relationships, in particular relationships between entities such as a person and a work or expression, or between resources.  Using relationship designators in bibliographic records has the potential to greatly enhance discovery of library resources. This session will provide guidance for catalogers in navigating this new aspect of cataloging: understanding categories of relationships, deciding among terms from the RDA Appendices, using multiple relationship designators, and sorting out situations where it seems impossible to describe a relationship.
