Free Core webinar: Global Standard, Local Choices - the new RDA Toolkit

Date: Tuesday, April 20, 2021

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

Description: The multi-year RDA 3R Project concluded in December 2020, with
the "beta" Toolkit becoming the official version of RDA. One outcome of the
3R Project is that the instructions contain a significant increase in the
number of options and other choices that cataloging agencies or catalogers
must make, based on their interest in maintaining current cataloging
practices, their implementation scenario, their collections, and their
users’ needs. RDA has been developed to support the inclusion of regional
and/or local guidance for catalogers, ranging from application profiles and
policy statements to additional vocabularies and local documentation.

RDA Steering Committee Chair Kathy Glennan will discuss the ways that
regional and local cataloging agencies can implement their guidance into
the Toolkit, providing catalogers with the practical information they need.

Learning outcomes:

At the end of this webinar, the attendees will be able to:


   Understand the difference between "base RDA" and supplemental guidance
   available in RDA Toolkit.

   Identify the different ways to include regional/local guidance in RDA
   Toolkit and the benefits associated with each choice.

   Explain what types of content can be found in the Toolkit's "Community
   resources" section.

Who should attend?

Catalogers, cataloging policy creators, and cataloging trainers all need to
understand how the new version of RDA can work for them.
