RDA: Preparing for the Change Together

RDA: Preparing for the Change Together | The Future Librarian | Scoop.it

Some have joked that RDA—which stands for Resource Description and Access, and is the cataloging code that will be formally adopted in 2013 in place of AACR2—should stand for Retirement Day Approaching, and other such phrases that expose catalogers’ general trepidation about creating records using the new code.

 

Here's an article that demonstrates how librarians can prepare for the implementation of RDA.  

 

Starting in February 2012, fifteen to twenty librarians and staff have met monthly to practice creating RDA records, explore the RDA Toolkit, and discuss authority workflows. Assisted by colleagues from the University of Nebraska, Nebraska Wesleyan University, the Nebraska Library Commission, and others, Kralik has arranged 3-hour sessions at various locations in eastern Nebraska. A variety of types of libraries (university, small public, special, etc.) are represented in the group, and several librarians have taken turns running the meetings.

 

The group has begun to discuss how the members will give each other support after RDA is implemented. One idea is to continue to use the wiki after RDA is in use, to throw questions out to the group via the wiki, and to act as informal peer reviewers of original records.

Library of Congress Announces Its Long-Range RDA Training Plan

Library of Congress Announces Its Long-Range RDA Training Plan...

 

The Library of Congress (LC) has announced that they would move forward with full implementation of RDA: Resource Description and Access on March 31, 2013. LC cited the significant progress that has been made toward addressing the recommendations of the U.S. RDA Test Coordinating Committee report of June 2011, and the need for sufficient lead time to prepare staff for the switch to RDA cataloging as reasons for the timing of this decision. The U.S. National Agricultural Library and the National Library of Medicine, as well as the British Library, Library & Archives Canada, Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, and National Library of Australia, will also target Day One of their implementation of RDA in the first quarter of 2013.

 

LC is now sharing its plan broadly to alert various constituencies. Download the Library of Congress Long-Range RDA Training Plan here: http://www.loc.gov/aba/rda/pdf/RDA_Long-Range_Training_Plan.pdf

RDA (Resource Description & Access)

RDA (Resource Description and Access) is a new standard for describing library resources, designed to replace AACR2.

 

Library staff, including public services, systems personnel, and catalogers, may have heard mention of RDA but not know much about it or how it will change their daily work.

 

This presentation answers many questions. What is RDA?  How is your library approaching RDA? Is your library planning to implement RDA? If yes, what is the plan? If not, how will your library handle RDA records? Do you think RDA will benefit your library and its patrons?

 

"We'll give a very little bit of history and theoretical background. What is this going to mean for catalogers, ILS managers, and users in the near term? What are the future implications, or, why are we doing this? What are the juicy bits of controversy in cataloger-land? And finally, Do we HAVE to? We'll talk for a while, have some activities that get you thinking, and find out your thoughts on RDA."

 

Presented at "Captains & Crew Collaborating," the 8th annual paraprofessional conference at J.Y. Joyner Library, East Carolina University.
