Transcript of RDA : A NEW Cataloguing Standard

Why the change?

From now on, resources that are being catalogued will be more Web-based and deal with more types of content.

RDA is designed to expand a patron's ability to search the online catalogue more effectively.









RDA has AACR2 as a foundation, but...








What is RDA?

RDA is the acronym for
R
esource
D
escription
A
ccess.

RDA is the new cataloguing standard which now replaces AACR2.



WHAT?
A New Cataloguing Standard
AACR2 was almost perfect!

there are changes to terminology and to some MARC record numbers.
MARC records in RDA contain more information as to the content type, media type and carrier type.
Let's compare a before RDA record and after RDA record in Follett Destiny.
We have a lot of old records!

Do we have to convert them all?!!!
Follett Destiny has given us the ability to run as a HYBRID catalogue. That is, old format records will still be valid. All new records will be catalogued in the new format.

The patron will be able to access information from either kind of record.

Guess what? Follett has made it very easy for us to convert an old record into the new format. It's just a click of a button.

Unfortunately, we can only convert one record at a time.
Copy Cataloguing
Often we copy catalogue records from Alliance Plus Online.

You may see two records for the same item. Have a look. One is in the old style format, the other in the new.

There will be records for older books that are available only in the old format. Copy them and then convert the records with the convert button.
In RDA MARC, Tag 260 has disappeared. It has been replaced with a new tag, Tag 264.

Also note the new tags 336 Content Type, 337 Media Type and 338 Carrier Type. These three tags replace the GMD, the "h" subfield in Tag 245.

All RDA compliant records will feature these new tags, plus others of which most of us are not too concerned with at our level of cataloguing.

Follett has provided lots of information on its website. Check out the MARC resource page. A PDF document entitled "AACR2 to RDA (Resource Description & Access)" has plenty of information to offer and it is slanted to our needs.
