What Does RDA Mean to You? (MCLS)

Scheduled Offerings

There are currently no classes scheduled for this course.

Course Overview

In this online workshop, come and hear about what RDA is all about. Learn some new terminology, and find out about the underlying frameworks of RDA. The current implementation timeline, as well as the RDA Toolkit, will also be discussed. Finally, hear about some of the issues facing RDA implementation. Most importantly, we will discuss whether libraries are really going to adopt the new code, and why.

This class will be online for 1 two-hour session using our online workshop software. You will receive additional instructions on how to attend this session after registering for this class.

Pricing listed above is per person. If you are interested in having multiple staff members attend an online workshop at a single location (e.g. a conference room), we are now offering a group rate of $249 for MCLS members and $349 for non-MCLS members. This rate will give you a single login that you will be able to use to login to one computer station. If you would like to register a group for an online workshop, please contact Heather Thomas at thomash@mcls.org.

Restrictions apply. Group pricing is not available for MCLS special programs. You can only purchase a group rate for employees of your institution (those who are not employees of your institution are not eligible to attend).
