New Concepts: Representative Expressions and Manifestation Statements Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, July 24, 2019, 12:00pm Eastern/11:00am Central/10:00 Mountain/9:00 Pacific

Ever since the introduction of work descriptions (including authority records describing works) in the original RDA, catalogers have wanted to include attributes of expression such as language in the description of the work. This was not unreasonable—most people think, for example, that Shakespeare’s use of the English language to compose King Lear is an important fact about the work itself—but under current RDA it is not possible to record this sort of element as part of the work description. The IFLA Library Reference Model introduced the concept of representative expression, which as incorporated into the revised RDA will allow catalogers to record certain “representative” expression elements in the description of the work. In addition to exploring representative expressions, this session will also have a look at the new concept of manifestation statements.

RDA Online Orientations
The RDA Online Orientations provide an introduction and illustrative examples to the many changes to RDA and the RDA Toolkit introduced during the 3R Project.  These series will provide a foundation of knowledge on which to optimize usage of the new and revised RDA and RDA Toolkit.

This workshop can also be purchased as a part of the New Concepts Workshop Series.
