5 Implementation in your library  Local policies  Communication with public services staff  E.g. rule of three: how many to trace  Communication with systems staff  E.g. icons/visual cues to replace GMD 5 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

6 Prepare yourself for training  Apply what you learned today!  Familiarize yourself with the RDA Toolkit. Try cataloguing something using RDA!  Train-the-trainer modules being developed by CLA-TSIG  Workshops and webinars from ALCTS  LC’s documentation for RDA test participants, with accompanying exercises  Modules from LC’s RDA train-the-trainer website 6 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

9 RDA and the future of cataloguing  recording well-formed metadata  designed for now and for the future  make library data visible 9 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

10 RDA = “well-formed” metadata  distinct and precise elements for each kind of data  each data element contains one type of data  instructions on how to record data for each element  controlled vocabulary is used as the value recorded in many elements  underlying model for the data = FRBR/FRAD model 10 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

11 RDA Metadata actionable data data that can be acted upon by humans machines(semantic web) 11 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

12 Designed for now and the future Now  designed to work in the current environment  compatible with AACR2 records  co-exist with AACR2 records in the same databaseFuture  positioned to take advantage of new database structures based on linked data  function in the semantic web  visible in the web alongside other types of metadata 12 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

13 RDA = content standard RDA not an encoding standard not a presentation standard RDA data can be encoded using: MARC 21 other encoding systems such as Dublin Core, MODS, etc RDA data can be presented using : ISBD conventions other display conventions or standards 13 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

14 RDA data: in existing databases bibliographic records = description+ access points + authority records – linked to access points + holdings records – linked to bib records Bibliographic Authority Holdings 14 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011

15 RDA data: in future databases  Separate records for  Work  Expression  Manifestation  Item  Person  Corporate body  Family 15 Hitchens | CASLIS | March, 2011
