Original Cataloging of Sound Recordings Using RDA (MCLS)

Scheduled Offerings

Course Overview

This workshop teaches participants how to do original cataloging of physical sound recordings (CDs, MP3s and cassettes, both musical and nonmusical), using such tools as RDA and OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards. The class will address original cataloging in the MARC format.

The instruction will cover issues like the preferred source of information, physical description, authorized access point, content/media/carrier types, and choice of additional access points. In addition, participants will learn the MARC fixed and variable fields for sound recordings, and will study the relationships among these fields. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and three hands-on exercises will be included. The online versions of the RDA Toolkit and OCLC's Bibliographic Formats and Standards will also be used.

PLEASE NOTE: Basic navigation in the RDA Toolkit will NOT be covered.  

This class will be online using WebEx online workshop software. All registered attendees will receive an email with WebEx login information a few days prior to the class date.

This workshop has been approved for six (6) General Library Education Units (LEUs) for Indiana staff.
