RDA 201 at ALA Conference

The two-day preconference on RDA concludes today. The first day featured four presentations covering key areas of difference between RDA and AACR2 and best practices for RDA Toolkit. One point of emphasis was the key role of workflows in maximizing the potential of RDA Toolkit. In the near future we plan to share the best practices and fresh ideas for workflows on the blog. Today's session covers cataloging electronic resources, visual materials, and nonmusical audio recordings with RDA, as well as a presentation on RDA's impact on library automation systems. Stay tuned for more RDA reports from New Orleans.
