Original Cataloging of Digital Resources (Virtual/Internet Resources and Video Games) Using RDA (Online Workshop)Here is your chance to work with RDA (Resource Description and Access) as applied to the original cataloging of digital resources. This hands-on workshop teaches participants how to original catalog digital resources using such tools as the RDA toolkit, the Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements, and Library of Congress Subject Headings Manual. The class will address original cataloging of all forms of digital resources: virtual materials, such as websites, eBooks, eSerials, and downloadable audio books, music and video files, as well as physical media, such as video games, CD-ROMs and other computer disks. The class will address original cataloging in the MARC format. Among the topics discussed will be the chief source of information, physical description, primary access point, and the choice of additional access points. Participants will learn the appropriate MARC fixed and variable fields for digital resources, and will study the relationships among these fields. Assignment of subject headings for digital resources will also be discussed. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and a number of hands-on exercises will be included. The booklet for this workshop contains an RDA Workflow providing the relevant RDA rules, the Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements and MARC coding information. The OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards will also be used.
PLEASE NOTE: Basic navigation in the RDA Toolkit will NOT be covered. You will need to attend Original Cataloging of Monographs using RDA prior to attending this program
