Teaching RDA After 3R Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Monday, August 19, 2019, 12:00pm Eastern/11:00am Central/10:00 Mountain/9:00 Pacific

Geared toward LIS instructors responsible for teaching RDA as well as practitioners who perform staff training, this webinar covers strategies for introducing students to the new RDA Toolkit. This webinar addresses how to teach students to use the new Toolkit, with an emphasis on how to navigate RDA and understand its setup, how to find what they need, and how they can take advantage of new functionality important to learners. Recommendations for background preparation for students will also be presented. Please note, this webinar assumes attendee familiarity with concepts and terminology stemming from the Library Reference Model (LRM) incorporation during 3R revisions. 

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.

After participating in this event, you will be able to:

  • Introduce students and new learners to key concepts and terms associated with RDA following 3R revisions
  • Explain the structure, navigation, and functionality of the new Toolkit
  • Use the RDA Toolkit to support student understanding of bibliographic data and the cataloging process
