04 May 2016 - 06 May 2016
This workshop teaches participants how to catalog videos and DVDs using such tools as RDA and Library of Congress Subject Headings Manual. (3 days / 2-hour session per day)
This workshop teaches participants how to catalog videos and DVDs using such tools as RDA and Library of Congress Subject Headings Manual. The class will address original cataloging in the MARC format. The instruction will cover issues like the chief source of information, physical description, main entry, choice of additional access points, and -to a limited extent- assignment of Library of Congress subject headings. In addition, participants will learn the MARC fixed and variable fields for videos, and will study the relationships among these fields. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and a number of hands-on exercises will be included. The booklet for this workshop contains RDA rules combined with MARC coding information. The online version of OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards will also be used. PLEASE NOTE: Basic navigation in the RDA Toolkit will NOT be covered. You will need to attend Original Cataloging of Monographs Using RDA prior to attending this program.
