London Public Library (Central Branch), 251 Dundas Street
Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new cataloguing standard and successor to AACR2, will be released in June 2010, signalling a new direction for cataloguing rules and catalogue records. A key aspect of RDA is its alignment with the FRBR/FRAD conceptual models (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records and Functional Requirements for Authority Data).
The session will demonstrate how this alignment shapes RDA’s goals and structure, and it will focus on the aspects of RDA that distinguish it from its predecessor, AACR2. The session will also address preparation for implementation.
Alison Hitchens is a Cataloguing & Metadata Librarian at University of Waterloo Library. Alison has held a variety of cataloguing positions in Ontario and Manitoba. She has worked as a cataloguer for the Resource Library for the Environment and the Law in Toronto, for ISM (now OCLC Canada) Library Technical Services in Winnipeg, and as the Manager of the Cataloguing Department at Library Services Centre in Kitchener. Alison recently co-published a paper “Preparing catalogers for RDA training.”
