WORKSHOP: “Basic Cataloging with RDA,” CLA Pre-Conference, Nov 3rd, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm

Back by popular demand!

Last year’s RDA pre-conference workshop was sold-out and we are happy to offer an updated RDA training workshop again!

Please join us for the 2013 California Library Association pre-conference workshop “Basic Cataloging with RDA,” presented by Luiz Mendes (CSU Northridge) and Kevin Balster (UCLA), sponsored by the CLA Technical Services Interest Group and co-sponsored by the CLA Chinese American Librarians Interest Group. The pre-conference workshop will be held on Sunday, November 3, from 8:30AM-4:30PM.

RDA, the new cataloging standard, was implemented by the Library of Congress on March 31, 2013, and California librarians are now challenged to implement and integrate RDA into their local catalogs. This workshop will offer a basic introduction to cataloging with RDA, will focus on print monographs, and will cover both description and access. Attendees will participate in hands-on exercises which will include use of tools and documentation in support of cataloging with RDA. Attendees will access the latest national documentation on policies, decisions, best practices, and training materials related to RDA. Through guided participatory exercises they will gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed for the effective implementation and integration of RDA into the fabric of their libraries.

RDA pre-conference workshop pricing: $90 non-members: $65 members; $50 student members

Registration for the full CLA Conference is not required for (or included in) this pre-conference workshop, but if you plan to attend the CLA 2013 conference don’t forget that early-bird conference pricing ends at 5:00PM on Friday, August 30!
