RDA for the Seasoned Cataloger: Print Monographs (Minitex)
There are currently no classes scheduled for this course.
The Library of Congress and other libraries will transition from AACR2 to RDA in 2013. In anticipation of this move, Minitex is offering a self-paced, online workshop on cataloging textual print monographs using RDA--for books, for pamphlets, for sheets. Though we touch upon the underlying principles of RDA cataloging, the majority of our time will be dedicated to answering a practical need: how to use the new standard to copy catalog and build original MARC bibliographic records for print monographs.
The registration fee for staff and institutions in the Minitex region varies: for Minnesota and North Dakota, it is $110; for South Dakota and Wisconsin, $125. For those outside the region, the fee is $150 (US dollars). This fee applies to the three-part course as a whole.
Schedule: The workshop is divided into three parts and delivered over a three week period. For each part you are given six days, including a weekend, to complete the training materials. Your access to Moodle will continue for about one week after the workshop’s conclusion.
