1-3 Descriptive Cataloging Tools RDA (Resource Description & Access) LC-PCC PS (Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements) MARC & ISBD PCC Task Group Reports: http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/rda/RDA%20Task%20Gro ups.html CONSER Cataloging Manual & CONSER Editing Guide
RDA CONSER Documentation: http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/conser/issues/CSR.html 1-4 FRBR as Foundation of RDA Closely tied to FRBR/FRAD concepts International Cataloging Principles 1-5 FRBR as a Foundation of RDA Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR; 1998)
Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD; 2009) Entities, attributes, relationships, user tasks 1-6 ICP informs RDA Principles
Convenience of the user Representation Common usage Accuracy Sufficiency and necessity Significance Economy Consistency and standardization
Integration Defensible, not arbitrary 1-7 Relationship of FRBR to RDA FRBR offers a structure to address user tasks FRBR attributes translate into RDA data elements RDA combines FRBR conceptual model with cataloging principles FRBR is not a cataloging code -- but it shows the benefit of a code based on FRBR
1-8 Overview of RDA RDA: What it is RDA: Structure 1-9 RDA: What it is Content standard Not A display standard An encoding standard
Schema-neutral Can use MARC 21 Dublin Core etc. 1-10 RDA: What it is More international Focus on local user needs Agencies can make decisions regarding
Language of additions to access points Language of supplied data Script and transliteration Calendar Numeric system 1-11
RDA: What it is Wider scope of resources Reflect whats being acquired in libraries non-printed text resources non-text resources unpublished resources Defers to specialist manuals of some collaborative communities 1-12 RDA: What it is
Authority data Based on attributes and relationships in FRAD Authority elements, for now, are documented in authority records 1-13 RDA: What it is Controlled vocabularies Only a few are closed lists
Content type Media type Carrier type Mode of issuance Most are open lists Cataloger can supply term if not in list Vocabularies are available on the Web http://metadataregistry.org/rdabrowse.htm 1-14
RDA: Structure Table of Contents General introduction Entities and their attributes Group 1 (Chapters 1-7) Group 2 (Chapters 8-16)
Relationships: chapters 17-22, 24-32 Appendices Glossary Index 1-15 RDA: Structure Principles applicable to all resources Not separate chapters for formats (e.g., books, maps, printed music, etc.) Identify and relate user tasks Elements addressed separately
To assemble elements when needed (e.g., in authorized access points, see the instructions at the end of chapters 6, 9-11) 1-16 RDA: Structure Read purposefully, not linearly Keyword searches Follow links Jump directly from Table of Contents Some duplication of content
1-17 RDA: Structure Core-ness Based on attributes mandatory for a national level record (FRBR/FRAD) Defined at the element level Title Proper Always Core if situation described CORE ELEMENT
The element must be recorded if known PCC has identified additional elements as core Indicated in LC-PCC Policy Statements (LC-PCC PS) Later Title Proper CORE ELEMENT FOR LC/PCC 1-18 RDA: Structure Alternatives, Options, and Exceptions Clearly labeled in the Toolkit by green legends and vertical bars Alternatives to an instruction
Options Additional data Omission of data agency preparing instructions 1-19 LC-PCC Policy Statements To facilitate standard interpretation and application Jointly crafted by LC and the Program for Cooperative Cataloging PCC is an international cooperative effort aimed at expanding access to library collections by providing
useful, timely, and cost-effective cataloging that meets mutually-accepted standards of libraries around the world BIBCO, CONSER, NACO, SACO http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/ 1-20 MARC Machine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) Markup language for catalogers Understanding MARC Bibliographic http://www.loc.gov/marc/umb/
Online resource for learning about MARC Source for the brief overview that follows 1-21 ISBD International Standard Bibliographic Description 1974 Internationally accepted framework Goal: result in records that are convertible into machine-readable form Assigned an order to the elements
System of punctuation 1-22 FRBR vs. RDA vs. MARC FRBR is a conceptual model RDA is a cataloging standard based on the FRBR conceptual model MARC is an encoding scheme by which computers exchange, use, and interpret bibliographic information 1-23
RDA Implementation Three potential implementation scenarios for RDA data Scenario 1: Relational / object-oriented database structure Scenario 2: Linked bibliographic and authority records Scenario 3: Flat file database structure (no links) http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/5editor2.pdf 1-24 RDA Implementation Current library environment Data will still be ambiguous
Standards RDA LC-PCC PS MARC ISBD CONSER core elements OCLC or other utility Local standards, practices, etc. 1-25 Goals for the Workshop Understand the concept of continuing
resources Identify serials and distinguish them from monographs and integrating resources Apply RDA instructions for description of serials Understand RDA CONSER standard record (CSR) 1-26
Goals for the Workshop Become familiar with MARC tags used for serials Create original serials cataloging records Identify appropriate serial copy and needed edits Current conventions and practices Useful cataloging tools 1-27
