Establishing Access Points According to RDA in Bibliographic Records

A session at 2014 American Theological Library Association Annual Conference

  • Denise M. Pakala
  • Judy Knop

Wednesday 18th June, 2014

1:00pm to 4:30pm (CST)

This workshop will give an introduction to RDA heading construction. It is intended for non-NACO cataloguers. We will look at the basic structure of an RDA authority record, highlighting the numerous new fields. We will give a basic introduction to the major changes to headings in RDA. Some examples include the use of profession or occupation to differentiate previously undifferentiated personal names, changes in the addition of titles to personal names, changes in date format with personal names, use of 'Selections' with uniform titles, handling of multi-language uniform titles (e.g. English & Greek, Polyglot), and the use of $i in more fields and more extensively.
