On June 15, 2011 the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) affirmed its support of the US national libraries' decision to implement RDA and began preparing for this transition by forming several task groups to investigate, identify, and explore issues related to the PCC's transition to RDA. PCC's goal during the shift to RDA is to develop and foster effective and efficient means of implementing a new set of rules while gaining a maximum amount of benefits from them.To fulfill this goal, as the Cooperative Serials Program of the PCC, CONSER determined a set of RDA core elements for CONSER records through the effort of multiple task groups and members discussions in the course of a year's time. In this session, the presenters will discuss the considerations taken by the CONSER Standard Record RDA Core Elements Task Group and the CONSER Program membership in determining this core set of RDA elements for the CONSER records. The session will also cover the process of creating the CONSER standard record (CSR) RDA workflow as a guide to assist serial catalogers in the creation of RDA records for serials. The CSR-RDA workflow is openly shared on the CONSER website and also available in the online RDA Toolkit.
Presenters: Valerie Bross, UCLA, Les Hawkins and Hien Nguyen, Library of Congress
