Cataloging, Classification & RDA
Overview of RDA provisions related to archival collections, including both bibliographic and authority records. Explores the possible connections between RDA and Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS), and their potential application as supplementary standards.
A traditional Dewey arrangement of nonfiction collections works well for library staff, but is it the best method for your patrons to find what they need? Instructor Mary Rzepczynski, assistant library director at the Delta Township (Mich.) District Library, was inspired by a desire to improve service, increase access, and empower patrons while maintaining “findability.” She led her library in a charge to expand the Dewey for nonfiction collections and, in the first year, saw circulation in that area go up by 122 percent.

This session provides a brief introduction to and overview of the MARC21 Format for Holdings Data (MFHD) and ANSI/NISO Z39.71.

While RDA is being tested, what are libraries doing to prepare for the adoption of RDA? What impact will implementation have on staff training and systems? How will libraries manage the integration of RDA records with AACR2 records in their catalogs? How will libraries assess the value of the new cataloging code in terms of its ability to meet user needs and contribute to future systems development? This ALCTS e-Forum will provide an opportunity for the community at large to discuss a wide range of issues related to RDA and it overall implications for library operations.
This hour-long ALCTS webinar covers basic, general principles of classification and addresses the two main classification systems, Library of Congress Classification (LCC) and Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC). Includes discussion on strengths and weaknesses of each.
Are you unsure about how (or whether) to apply RDA to rare materials? This webinar will present an overview of RDA provisions related to rare materials, including both bibliographic and authority records, and will explore how well RDA and Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (DCRM) can be used together to describe rare materials. The webinar will reflect work sponsored by the ACRL Rare Books and Manuscripts Section's Bibliographic Standards Committee, including a white paper prepared by the presenters.
This presentation will cover highlights of RDA instructions related to cataloging kits and three-dimensional forms (objects), such as models, toys, artifacts, and naturally occurring objects, in an educational setting. An ALCTS webcast.
This presentation will provide an overview of the cataloging of moving image content using RDA, focusing on areas that differ from AACR2, are challenging to interpret, or are in need of community consensus. Examples include DVD, Blu-ray, streaming video, and video games. An ALCTS Webcast.
This webinar provides a general overview of the changes in RDA, particularly those affecting staff in technical services and those noticeable in the OPAC. No knowledge of current cataloging standards or MARC required!

Wondering what makes an RDA authority record an improvement on an AACR2 authority record? This hour-long ALCTS webinar explores and explains the differences.
This hour-long ALCTS webinar describes the use of the new MARC fields in RDA authority records and presents best practices for providing that information.
You want your users to have more confidence, be more independent, and be able to find the right book. By rearranging your children's collections you will be able to accomplish this and more. We can show you where to start, point out possible potholes and give you a map to the future. Join the library team from the Ethical Culture School which 2 years ago began to look at alternatives to Dewey and chose to implement the Metis Classification System to great success increaseing both circulation and patron satisfaction.
