Besplatni webinar: Global Standard, Local Choices – The New RDA Toolkit

Vrijeme održavanja: 20/4/2021

1:00 PM-2:00 PM (Central)


The multi-year RDA 3R Project concluded in December 2020, with the “beta” Toolkit becoming the official version of RDA. One outcome of the 3R Project is that the instructions contain a significant increase in the number of options and other choices that cataloging agencies or catalogers must make, based on their interest in maintaining current cataloging practices, their implementation scenario, their collections, and their users’ needs. RDA has been developed to support the inclusion of regional and/or local guidance for catalogers, ranging from application profiles and policy statements to additional vocabularies and local documentation.

RDA Steering Committee Chair Kathy Glennan will discuss the ways that regional and local cataloging agencies can implement their guidance into the Toolkit, providing catalogers with the practical information they need.

At the end of this webinar, the attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the difference between “base RDA” and supplemental guidance available in RDA Toolkit.
  • Identify the different ways to include regional/local guidance in RDA Toolkit and the benefits associated with each choice.
  • Explain what types of content can be found in the Toolkit’s “Community resources” section.


  • Kathy Glennan currently serves as the Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services at the University of Maryland
