Goodbye AACR2 and hello RDA. The test results are in, three national libraries (LC, NLM and NLA) plan to implement the new standard "no sooner than January 2013." This workshop will bring you the latest news on RDA and give you a thorough overview of the new content standard. Topics include: FRBR review; RDA Core elements for description, preferred titles and names; changes from AACR2; articulating relationships between resources and entities; RDA Toolkit functionality; using workflows and mappings to catalog materials with RDA. Through exercises and hands-on cataloging experiences, participants will receive a thorough grounding in RDA.
