  • Description
  • About the Author

Since its publication, thousands of catalogers, technical services librarians, and LIS students have benefitted from the expert guidance provided by El-Sherbini's guide, which won the 2014 ALCTS Outstanding Publication Award. In this new edition, she completely updates her text to reflect the changes to RDA: Resource Description and Access that debut in 2019. Starting with a comparison of the conceptual background and structure of RDA to AACR2, she then moves beyond theory to show real-world examples of implementation, illustrated with many clear examples of the new MARC21 fields in use. A valuable roadmap for RDA novices as well as a ready reference for practitioners, this book

  • traces the history of RDA and the transition from AACR2, enumerating the differences and similarities between the standards;
  • presents detailed strategies on implementing RDA, from general training tips to decision making, integrating new RDA records with legacy records, exporting RDA-based bibliographic records, vendor services, and much more, covering every aspect of daily practice;
  • explains the alignment of the RDA with the IFLA’s Library Reference Model (LRM) and CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM);
  • features numerous handy checklists and worksheets to aid cataloging and reinforce learning;
  • explores the new emphasis on relationships between entities and what it means for RDA users; and
  • provides updated guidance on getting the most out of the structural changes to the RDA Toolkit after the completion of the 3R Project.

Incorporating the latest developments in RDA, this comprehensive resource remains the authoritative guide to implementing the new cataloging standard.
