Over the past two years, CONSER has been developing documentation and "bridge" training material as RDA cataloging policies and best practices evolve. By June 2013, post RDA implementation guidelines from the PCC should be in place and ready for practical implementation.

The workshop will provide basic instructions for RDA serials cataloging based on the most up to date PCC and CONSER RDA decisions and practices. The presenters will incorporate in-class, hands-on exercises to engage participants in active learning.  Prior to the workshop, attendees will be expected to complete prerequisite self study training modules on FRBR Fundamental Concepts and the RDA Toolkit.  Also prior to the workshop attendees may participate in an online follow-up session on the prerequisite materials to complement the in-class training component.

This workshop is aimed at experienced AACR2 catalogers making the transition to RDA.

This is held over two days (two sessions). Session 2
