RDA is the new cataloging standard that replaced the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition in 2009.

RDA goes beyond earlier cataloging codes in that it provides guidelines on cataloging digital resources and a stronger emphasis on helping users find, identify, select, and obtain the information they want.

RDA also supports clustering of bibliographic records to show relationships between works and their creators. This important new feature makes users more aware of a work’s different editions, translations, or physical formats – an exciting development. 

Barbara Tillett from the Library of Congress will be on-hand to lead a conversation among librarians from all types of libraries at this event.

Refreshments will be provided.
