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.

The Value of Relationships in Advocacy
This pre-conference session strives to alter library professionals’ perception of advocacy and remove the mystique. Often seen as formal and intimidating, advocacy does not have the be daunting, rather, it can be natural and an expression of self by emphasizing the relationship aspect and by finding your niche. From patrons to local officials, relationships and “the mushy stuff” matter.
