Cataloging with RDA: Learning the Changes of the Updated Resource Description and Access PART ONE
RDA (Resource Description and Access), the current cataloging standard, has vastly improved the ways libraries describe their materials in the digital age. RDA has particularly made description easier for electronic and multimedia materials, thus making them more discoverable for patrons. In the last year, RDA has published its most significant update to date in order to clarify rules, provide working examples, and thoroughly reshape the RDA Toolkit to make the entire process of using RDA easier. Robert Maxwell, THE expert in RDA and author of Maxwell’s Handbook for RDA, will provide this informative and invaluable training session.

This is a two-part hands-on training, so please bring your laptop.

Baptism by Barcoding: Introducing Library Student Workers to Special Collections Management
Catalogers at the Utah State University Merrill-Cazier Library are barcoding the entirety of Special Collections and Archives in order to efficiently track the usage of collection items. Students manage the collections and specialize in their different areas. The process involves cataloging, improving existing records, and spreadsheet tracking. Barcoding statistics are totaled and displayed on a physical map of the library. The map playfully markets the progress and value to administration.

More than We Know What to Do with: The Fulton Library and an Unusual Donation
In 2018, Fulton Library was offered an unusual donation: 63,000 books from the inventory of a closed bookstore.  As this is approximately 1/3rd of the size of the regular collection at Fulton Library, several unique considerations had to be made.  In this presentation, Anthony Morris, Kira Buswell, and Shay Chestnut will discuss our experience with accepting and processing this donation, describe the lessons we've learned, and talk about building mutually beneficial relationships with donors.

Describing Absence: An Analysis of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive
The presenters were faced with the task of creating best practices for ethically describing items and collections where information regarding marginalized groups, in this case Native Americans, was never recorded. The metadata of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive was analyzed via OpenRefine to highlight instances of this "archival silence" within the collection. This presentation aims to discuss the process as well as the larger problem of archival silence and how best to mitigate it.

Perspectives on Collaborating Partnerships Between Collection Development and Library Instruction
What do relationships between collection development and library instructors as well as intergenerational partnerships look like, given the current emphasis on demand driven acquisitions and a movement away from collection focus into patron focused approach?  At the University of Utah an Instruction Librarian and New Collection Development Librarian are exploring that concept, collaborating as liaisons to the school of communications.
