RDA Has Arrived: Essentials of RDA for Public Services
Presented by Susan Wynne June 19, 2013
From the excellent Carterette Series of webinars from GLA: After years of buzz, the Library of Congress implemented the new cataloging standard RDA (Resource Description and Access) on March 31, 2013. Susan Wynne will discuss the major differences between AACR2 practices and RDA, focusing on how RDA affects user displays and navigation in local catalogs, WorldCat, and elsewhere. What is RDA and why should I care? RDA is part of the ongoing transformation of library data with an objective of responsiveness to user needs.

RDA Toolkit Essentials
The webinar RDA Toolkit Essentials serves as an introduction and guide to using RDA Toolkit. Unlike past webinars, it is not a one-off event. Instead, it will return every other month (typically on the third Wednesday), and each occurrence of RDA Toolkit Essentials will focus on exactly that–the essentials of using RDA Toolkit. We’ll review subscription options, logging in, navigating, creating Workflows, and setting bookmarks. We’ll cover the variety of content available and offer tips for getting more from your account. And above all, we will answer your questions.
