RDA training materials from the Kent State University Libraries

Kent State took part in the early testing of RDA and has generously shared their training materials.  You can find them here.

The materials include general overviews of RDA with examples, PowerPoints on cataloging specific formats in RDA, and links to useful articles and web sites.

Cataloging posters available!

The Action Council has updated its cataloging “cheat sheet” posters.  These posters provide concise examples of up-to-date MARC coding for a variety of formats, and are formatted to be printed on legal size paper for quick reference.  You can download the PDFs here.  The posters reflect current best practices for cataloging according to the AACR2r rules.

Yes, the Action Council intends to produce similar posters for cataloging various formats according to the RDA rules.  Stay tuned!
