This workshop teaches participants how to do original cataloging of physical videos and DVDs using such tools as RDA and OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards. The class will address original cataloging in the MARC format. The instruction will cover issues like the preferred source of information, physical description, authorized access point, content/media/carrier types, and choice of additional access points. In addition, participants will learn the MARC fixed and variable fields for videos, and will study the relationships among these fields. Several MARC record examples will be examined, and two hands-on exercises will be included. The online versions of the RDA Toolkit and OCLC 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 Original Cataloging of Monographs Using RDA prior to attending this program.
This class will be online using WebEx online workshop software. All registered attendees will receive an email with WebEx login information a few days prior to the class date.
Attending the MARC: An Introduction workshop (or working knowledge of MARC) and attending the Original Cataloging of Monographs Using RDA workshop (or working knowledge of the RDA Toolkit) are required. Access to the RDA Toolkit is helpful but not required.
