10:30am to 12:00pm
RDA is upon us. What is it? How does RDA relate to AACR2rev, metadata, FRBR, ISBD, LC rule interpretations? What (hopefully few), principles should we know? Are there simple schemes which will allow us to survive, until things are clearer? (And clearer when? Would that be next year, 2014?), How will it change our cataloging? What are libraries doing? What do we need to do to manage the changes? What should we tell our cataloging staff? This program consists of short presentations, examples, practicalities -- and LOTS of discussion. Join us to discuss this watershed change in cataloging, and how we might manage RDA for our libraries.
Sandy Card has worked at the Binghamton University Libraries for over 25 years where she currently holds the position of Director of Technical Services. With an academic library background in cataloging and systems, she wants to know how users access information --how metadata, indexing and authority control affect information gathering and search results.
Kimmy Szeto is Cataloging and Metadata Librarian at Maritime College, where they've plunged head-first as early RDA adopters. In teaching RDA and library technologies at CUNY Queens College, he encourages unwitting students to dive right in. After 5pm, Kimmy moonlights on the classical/new-music circuits as the pianist behind glamorous vocalists.
