RDA for all of us!

RDA, the cataloguing standard developed to replace AACR2, was published in June 2010.
How will these changes in cataloguing affect your work and your clients?
What does it mean for cataloguing and non-cataloguing staff?

Don’t panic; come to RDA for all of us!

This information session will give an overview of RDA, a very brief introduction to FRBR and FRAD (the conceptual models that underpin RDA), and plans for implementation.

Speaker, Laura May has been Information Standards Specialist at Library and Archives Canada since 2009, where she is actively engaged in the development of RDA. She also serves as secretary to the Canadian Committee on Cataloguing. Previously, she has held positions in cataloguing at Concordia University Libraries in Montreal, Ryerson University Library in Toronto, and the Library of Parliament.
