RDA: Staff Training, Implementation, and Monographic Workflow
This webinar focuses on describing the process of one academic library’s journey into adoption and integration of the Resource Description and Access (RDA) cataloging rules into the monographic copy cataloging workflows, following the adoption by the Library of Congress and other national libraries. The University of Illinois at Chicago Library took a very practical and functional approach to implementation and training. The webinar covers:
- internal and external factors that affect implementation
- challenges of and practical solutions to being a single trainer at an institution
- statistical measurements of the initial workflow output
- identify strategies for RDA implementation, training, and workflow
- comprehend one successful RDA monographic workflow implementation at an academic library
- gain an understanding of a successful training program for foundational FRBR and RDA concepts
- learn useful training tips and techniques for trainers of copy cataloging staff
Who Should Attend?
Cataloging managers and those who find themselves in a position of training non-librarian copy cataloging staff.
