Practical Cataloguing for the Hybrid Environment : The Transition from AACR2 to RDA Electronic book text

Electronic book text


Issues surrounding the many options in RDA have been the subject of much discussion, unease and concern within the cataloguing community. Consistency of entry and predictability of search have long been the goals of user-focused catalogues. This book explores some of the significant current challenges, using a wide range of international sources to answer the many questions asked by current cataloguers, including:
* what are the increased decision-making powers of the cataloguer based on RDA? * what support is available in making decisions, including training materials and policy statements from national libraries and international consortia? * how can libraries of varying sizes integrate new RDA data within their catalogues and their cataloguing practice? * what steps can cataloguers take to increase their decision-making skills and confidence, and how can employers support staff in this?
Written by a highly experienced teacher and consultant, this book will help bring clarity to some of the key challenges of cataloguing, with a wealth of decision-making scenarios, discussions and real world examples.
