Resource Description and Access (RDA) is a standard for descriptive cataloging, replacing AACR2, that provides instructions and guidelines on formulating bibliographic data in a linked data environment. Cataloging of special materials, such as reproductions, microforms, rare materials, etc. has always had unique requirements, which is also true when using RDA for serials cataloging. Catalogers dealing with these special materials are experimenting with using RDA to meet the needs of their users and staff to effectively describe these resources.

Presenters during this joint NISO/NASIG Webinar will explore the topic of specialized RDA cataloging, the different formats requiring an extra level of data for cataloging, and share experiences with converting specialized collections into RDA.

Topics and Speakers:

  • Filling in the Blanks: RDA for Moving Images and Music - Mary Huismann, Music/Media Original Cataloger, University of Minnesota
  • CONSER Implementation of RDA - Les Hawkins, CONSER Coordinator, Library of Congress
  • Applying the RDA CONSER Standard Record to Rare Serials - Robert L. Maxwell, Senior Librarian, Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University
