The Oceania region RDA Committee (ORDAC) is pleased to present a series of three webinars exploring concepts from the Official RDA Guidance chapters, presented by ORDAC member and Oceania RSC representative Charlotte Christensen based at the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa.

The RDA Guidance chapters are key to understanding Official RDA works concepts and how to interact with the standard. These sessions provide the step before beginning to describe a resource, exploring terminology and structure that will be key to following more community-focused sessions in the future. The guidance is relevant to all descriptive institutions and communities, not just libraries, and no prior knowledge of Official RDA is assumed for attendees.

The series will begin on June 7th, at 3pm NZST (UTC +12), and at the same time on June 14th and June 21. The start times are 1pm AEST / 12:30 ACST / 11am AWST.
