RDA Name Authorities—What's New and Different from AACR2
RDA enables a name authority record to be a much more dynamic tool in the bibliographic universe than an AACR2 authority record. Attributes or identifying characteristics of a name may be recorded in an RDA authority record, thereby enabling that authority record to serve current and future bibliographic needs in a much more dynamic way. This webinar will explore the differences between an AACR2 "two-dimensional" authority record and the much more robust and dynamic "three-dimensional" RDA authority record.
This webinar is part of the Fall 2012 RDA webinar series, which also includes:
- Recording RDA Elements in MARC 21 Fields in Name Authority Records
- RDA for the Non-Cataloger: What’s in It for You?
- RDA in 10 Easy Steps
Originally presented on Wednesday, October 17, 2012.
Attendees will gain an appreciation and an understanding of the dynamism that RDA brings to description of the FRBR Group Two Entities through name authority work.
