Official RDA Overview

January 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Old Fashion Catalog with drawers open

90 Minute PCI Webinar with Bobby Bothmann

Beginning in 2017, updates to and work on what is now “Original RDA” was halted for the 3R project: RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign. The result is now available for review as “Official RDA”.
It is based on the IFLA-LRM (Library Reference Model) and includes many new terms for old concepts such as Aggregates, Application Profiles, Nomens, and Representative Expressions, and new tools such as LC’s Metadata Guidance Documentation (MGD). This educational session* will explain the reasoning behind the revisions, what IFLA-LRM is, and introduce many of the new concept terms.

As a result of this program. participants will recognize and understand new concept terms (that is, aggregates, representative expressions, and so forth), define the IFLA-LRM and explain its significance, and recognize an application profile.
