New Concepts Workshop Series
A bundle of five 90-minute workshops, taking place on Wednesdays, July 17, July 24, July 31, August 7, and August 14, 2019, starting at 12:00pm Eastern/11:00am Central/10:00 Mountain/9:00 Pacific each workshop

The RDA Online Orientations provide an introduction and illustrative examples to the many changes to RDA and 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 series of webinars explores both new entities introduced by the IFLA Library  Reference Model (LRM), such as Nomen and Timespan, and other LRM-related concepts including manifestation statements. The series will also address new approaches to familiar topics such as Fictitious  Non-human Personages and Relationship Elements. 

Webinars included in this series:

This session will cover the development of the Nomen concept and how it will work in RDA, including the closely-related appellation elements.

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.

This online orientation will discuss the issues surrounding the use of fictitious and non-human personages in bibliographical records given the parameters of the LRM and RDA, the treatment of NHPS in RDA, and some possible solutions for catalogers to incorporate into their practice.

In this webinar, you will learn about what became of the relationship designators and of the RDA attributes that became relationship elements. You will learn to identify the domain and range in relationships, as well as find the alternate labels for relationship element names. We will then explore the new Toolkit to find the relationship elements of interest.

In revised RDA, a timespan such as date of birth will be treated as a relationship to the person rather than an attribute. This session will explore the implications of this new entity for future RDA descriptions. It will also have a look at new developments with the Place entity.

You can purchase registration for these workshops separately or as a bundle. If you register for this series or the Special Topics Series, you will be contacted by RDA at the end of the series to receive a 20% discount to the RDA Toolkit, pending you have not had an active subscription in the past two years.
