This workshop is geared toward intermediate catalogers who have knowledge of, and some experience with, cataloging in RDA. Participants will work together with an experienced panel of RDA catalogers to help them understand and solve difficult and challenging issues with real examples. Participants will be encouraged to pre-submit questions or problems they have encountered, which will supply content for a day of mini-seminars, to include examples, exercises, and group discussion. During the workshop, presenters will introduce each question/topic and lead participants through the decision-making process, assisted by a panel of catalogers who will lend their assistance (and opinions). This workshop will be highly interactive: Participants will be expected to speak up, share questions, and collaborate on solutions. Workshop attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops in order to participate in online exercises.
Takeaway 1: Participants will explore specific cataloging questions (submitted in advance), and apply the theories and practices learned to their RDA cataloging.
Takeaway 2: By working through exercises together, participants will consider and assess best practices for handling specific cataloging situations in RDA.
Takeaway 3: Participants will be able to identify resources for further training, documentation, cataloging examples, and assistance.
Who should attend: Catalogers who have begun to catalog using RDA and who would like to increase their knowledge and understanding by addressing, in a group setting, specific questions or problem areas shared by themselves and other catalogers; beginning catalogers who have done some preparation work in advance and are familiar with FRBR concepts, the RDA Toolkit, and the available online RDA training and documentation
