Copy cataloging often involves matching an existing bibliographic record to an item. Determining whether or not a bibliographic record is a match can depend upon knowing what guidelines were used in the construction of the description. This webinar seeks to provide an understanding of the variations in bibliographic description that occur within a shared cataloging environment when a variety of rules guide the process of record creation. The primary focus is on the application of specific RDA guidelines in the creation of bibliographic description through the use of excerpts from RDA, sample title pages, and sample bibliographic records. Special attention is paid to the basic principles and organization of RDA, and its relationship to FRBR. Examples highlight the variation in descriptions that can result from the application of RDA guidelines and options, as well as how these descriptions vary from those based on the application of AACR2.
