This preconference workshop will provide catalogers with
essential training as implementation of RDA at the national level draws
near. The workshop will include two 3-hour sessions, one on authority
work (providing access) and one on bibliographic work (resource description).
This preconference will provide hands-on opportunities for attendees to
catalog music resources using RDA.
Part I: Providing
Part II: Resource Description
Description: Attendees will have the opportunity to create bibliographic records for an assortment of musical resources, using RDA as well as workflows from the RDA Toolkit. Attendees will become comfortable using chapter 2 of RDA to record elements such as title, statement of responsibility, edition statement, and publication/distribution/manufacture statement to describe manifestations; using chapter 3 of RDA to record elements such as media type, carrier type, extent, dimensions, and sound characteristics to describe carriers; and using chapter 7 of RDA to record elements such as form of notation, sound content, format of notated music, medium of performance of musical content, and duration to describe content. Formats will include score, audio recording, and libretto.
