Carrier on Wayward Son: Physical Description Using RDA and MARC

Event Type: SWFLN Webinar
Date: 7/16/2020
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 11:00 AM
Description:
 Libraries collect so many types of resources. Your catalog must have an accurate physical description of all resources (such as what it is, the number of pages, and dimensions) so they are easily found by patrons and staff. Resource Description & Access (RDA) provides guidance on how to describe a variety of resources, from books to DVDs to puzzles. Geared toward those who have little to no cataloging education or experience, this webinar will explore the complex world of physical description mainly focusing on books, but also touching on other types of resources. The new RDA content, media, and carrier type elements will be discussed briefly as well. Examples in MARC will be provided throughout the webinar.

This presentation is a part of the cataloging basics series of webinars that includes "Introduction to Library Cataloging Standards" and "The Beginnerís Guide to FRBR". It is recommended that participants view these webinar recordings prior to attending this webinar.
