Description

This workshop teaches participants how to do copy cataloging of physical sound recordings (CDs, MP3s, and cassettes, both musical and nonmusical), using such tools as RDA and OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards. The class will address copy cataloging in the MARC format. The instruction will cover issues like the preferred source of information, physical description, authorized access point, content/type/carrier types, and choice of additional access points. In addition, participants will learn the MARC fixed and variable fields for sound recordings, and will study the relationships among these fields. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and three f hands-on exercises will be included. The online versions of the RDA Toolkit and OCLC’s Bibliographic Formats and Standards will also be used.

PLEASE NOTE: Basic navigation in the RDA Toolkit will NOT be covered. You will need to attend Copy Cataloging of Monographs Using RDA prior to attending this program.
