I1: RDA Test: Law Catalogers' Perspectives

Target Audience: Technical services librarians, administrators

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to analyze the potential workflow impacts of implementing RDA, based upon the experiences of RDA testing.
2. Participants will be able to explain how the RDA Toolkit is structured and how to use it effectively.

Law catalogers who participated in the RDA testing process during the fall of 2010 will describe their experiences. Topics will include: the testing process, overall impressions of RDA, and use of the online RDA Toolkit. The presenters will specifically compare using the online RDA Toolkit with using printed AACR2 guidelines for cataloging library materials. Participants will learn how RDA affected library workflow and productivity in the test libraries. (Please note that this program is NOT a training session on RDA itself.)
