RDA Lab: Nomens
A 4-part lab, taking place Tuesdays, July 28 through August 18, 2020, 3:30pm Eastern/2:30 Central/1:30 Mountain/12:30 Pacific, lasting one hour each session.

Nomen is a new entity in RDA, introduced in the IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM) to distinguish between the thing being cataloged itself and the label used to refer to that thing. This module will demystify this entity, demonstrating how other entities are identified by their relationships to nomens and how nomens simplify name changes and pseudonyms. Nomen elements such as reference source and context of use are also covered.

This lab is part of the RDA Lab Series.

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe a nomen using appropriate elements
  • Understand how nomens function in a library context
  • Begin using relationships to nomens for name changes, pseudonyms and multilingual cataloging environments.

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart. This individual will receive an e-mail from WebEx confirming registration before the event begins.
