A 4-part lab, taking place Tuesdays, October 20, October 27, November 3, and November 10, 2020, 3:30pm Eastern/2:30 Central/1:30 Mountain/12:30 Pacific, lasting one hour each session.

The revised RDA introduces new concepts for the entity Work, including representative expression elements, extension plan, and transformation. This module gives participants experience using new and existing elements to describe a work and relate new and source works to each other using the transformation element. Participants will describe a static work and a diachronic work. Topics covered in the module include appellation of work, representative expression, transformation, and other common elements used for work.

This lab is part of the RDA Lab Series.

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe a work using appropriate elements
  • Understand use cases for representative expression elements
  • Relate source works and new works with transformation elements
