Copy cataloging of sound recordings using RDA (Online Workshop)

This workshop teaches participants how to catalog sound recordings (CDs, MP3s, and cassettes, both musical and nonmusical), using such tools as RDA and Library of Congress Subject Headings Manual. The class will address copy cataloging in the MARC format. The instruction will cover issues like the chief sources of information, physical description, main entry, and choice of additional access points. In addition, participants will learn the MARC fixed and variable fields for sound recordings, and will study the relationships among these fields. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and a number of hands-on exercises will be included. The booklet for this workshop contains RDA rules combined with MARC coding information. The online version of 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 Copy Cataloging of Monographs Using RDA prior to attending this program.

This workshop is eligible for six (6) general library education units (LEUs).

This class will be online for 3 - 2 hour sessions over 3 consecutive days using our online workshop software. All registered attendees will receive additional login information a few days prior to the first class date.

Workshop Topic: Cataloging
Intended audience: copy catalogers responsible for the cataloging of sound recordings.

Attending the MARC: an introduction workshop (or working knowledge of MARC) and attending the Copy cataloging of monographs using RDA workshop (or working knowledge of the RDA Toolkit). Access to the RDA Toolkit is helpful but not required.
