Not familiar with RDA authorities? Did you know that implementing RDA means creating authority records to support the FRBR/FRAD relationships? Let the name authority experts teach you to create authority records in the RDA environment. At this one-day workshop learn to assign MARC 21 data for name authorities: persons, families, corporate, conferences, places, including preferred titles for works and expressions, with focus on the new MARC 21 fields that can be used now with AACR2!

This workshop is intended for catalogers new to authority work (those who have never created name authority records, or who have only created authority records at the local level), and/or who work with authority control issues at the local level.

Presenters

  • Ana Lupe Cristán, Cooperative Catalog Specialist, Library of Congress
  • Paul Frank, Cooperative Cataloger, Library of Congress
