    • WHAT WE’LL COVER • Quick intro • A bit about RDA • What this change means for librarians outside the catalog department • What we see in a catalog record will change. • New ways of searching will become possible. • Changes you may need to talk to your systems vendors about. • Time for your questions
    • INTRODUCTION • Why is a basic knowledge of RDA important? • A few acronyms • AACR2: Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd edition • MARC21: MAchine-Readable Cataloging • ISBD: International Standard Bibliographic Description • RDA: Resource Description and Access
    • RDA SOME BASIC INFO • A content standard • Published 2010, still being revised • Looking forward • Meant to describe a variety of media (extensible) • Designed for the digital environment • Looking back • Designed to play well with earlier standards, like AACR2
    • RDA USER TASKS • Find • Match search criteria to specific entities (via attributes and/or relationships) • Identify • Confirm that the resource found corresponds to the resource sought and distinguish between similar resources • Select • Choose entities that meet the patron’s needs and determine which do not • Obtain • Access or acquire the entity sought
    • ELEMENTS OF RDA • Entities • Group 1: products of intellectual or artistic endeavor • Work, Expression, Manifestation, Item (WEMI) • Group 2: those who produce Group 1 entities • Person, Corporate body, Family (PCbF) • Group 3: subjects of Group 1 entities • Concepts, Objects, Events, Places, and any Group 1 and 2 entities • Attributes- collectively describe/name/define a single entity • This is what we’re used to • Relationships- between 2 entities • This is new • Note the importance of relationships
    • CHANGES IN DESCRIPTION • What we see in a catalog record will change. • The amount of information provided in a record will increase. • The amount of jargon used in a record will decrease.
    • CHANGES IN DESCRIPTION “TAKE WHAT YOU SEE” • More information can be included • Example: no more rule of 3 • More cataloger’s judgment • Example: catalogers can choose to only include a few names or all of them Imaginary book / by Jane Doe, John Doe, Jane Eyre, John Hancock, and John Smith. OR Imaginary book / by Jane Doe [and four others].
    • CHANGES IN DESCRIPTION • Easier-to-understand descriptions • Example: no more abbreviations • P. is now “page” • Ed. is now “edition” • But we still use cm (no period) • Example: no more Latin terms • S.l. is now “Place of publication not identified” • Ca. is now “approximately” • Et. al. is now “and # others”
    • EXAMPLE EASIER-TO-UNDERSTAND DESCRIPTIONS Hart, Amy, author The RDA primer : a guide for the occasional cataloger / Amy Hart. Santa Barbara, California ; Denver, Colorado ; Oxford, England : Linworth, an imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, [2010] ©2010. xiii, 89 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
    • EXAMPLE EASIER-TO-UNDERSTAND DESCRIPTIONS Hart, Amy, author The RDA primer : a guide for the occasional cataloger / Amy Hart. Santa Barbara, California ; Denver, Colorado ; Oxford, England : Linworth, an imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, [2010] ©2010. xiii, 89 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
    • NEW SEARCH CAPABILITIES • New ways of searching will become possible. • Relationships are more important.
    • RELATIONSHIPS Authority records are becoming more detailed
    • RELATIONSHIPS • Inclusion of more names • All contributors can be included in the statement of responsibility and in added entries • Works contained in the main work can be included and defined • Relator terms tell you what the relationship is • Examples: • Author to work • Part of a collected works set • A parody of a work • Very handy with more complex relationships
    • EXAMPLE OF RELATIONSHIPS Beethoven, Ludwig van, 1770-1827. Stutschewsky, Joachim, 1891-1982. Image from www.orble.com
    • EXAMPLE OF RELATIONSHIPS Beethoven, Ludwig van, 1770-1827, composer. Stutschewsky, Joachim, 1891-1982, editor. Image from www.orble.com
    • EXAMPLE OF RELATIONSHIPS WITHOUT RELATOR TERMS Beethoven, Ludwig van, 1770-1827. Variations sur un thème de Händel. Beethoven, Ludwig van, 1770-1827. Variations sur le thème Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen. Handel, George Frideric, 1685-1759. Judas Maccabaeus. Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus, 1756-1791. Zauberflöte. Mädchen oder Weibchen.
    • EXAMPLE OF RELATIONSHIPS WITH RELATOR TERMS Contains (work) : Beethoven, Ludwig van, 1770-1827. Variations sur un thème de Händel. Contains (work) : Beethoven, Ludwig van, 1770-1827.

    • CHANGES IN SEARCH AND DISPLAY • Changes you may need to talk to your systems vendors about. • No more GMD, replaced by new fields
    • NO MORE GMD (GENERAL MATERIAL DESIGNATION) •GMD in AACR2 Adele [videorecording] : live at the Royal Albert Hall / Done and Dusted, Family Values, XL Recordings, Columbia Music Video ; producer, Cordelia Plunket ; director, Paul Dugdale.
    • NO MORE GMD •Replaced in RDA by: Content type, Media type, Carrier type • Content type: text, two-dimensional moving image, performed music • Media type: unmediated, computer, video, audio • Carrier type: volume, sheet, computer disc, audio disc Adele : live at the Royal Albert Hall / Done and Dusted, Family Values, XL Recordings, Columbia Music Video ; producer, Cordelia Plunket ; director, Paul Dugdale. two-dimensional moving image (content type) video (media type) videodisc (carrier type)
    • YOUR CATALOG AND RDA • Talk to your system vendor! • Make sure all useful fields and subfields display… • Or can be searched by your system • Working with GMDs in old records and content/media/carrier type in new records • Be aware that some subject changes, especially to do with the Bible, are sticky and need to be addressed. • Linking data
    • CONCLUSION • RDA will change what we see in the catalog • Some things will take some time to get used to • Some changes in RDA still need to be made • Potential for better searching is great • You have time!
