Upcoming Webinar on Resource Description and Access

The Canadian Library Association (CLA) is holding two webinars in the near future on Resource Description and Access, the new cataloguing standard and successor to AACR2.

The two events are:

What is RDA and why do I need to know?
It’s 2013 and RDA is being implemented. What does this mean for the library as a whole? This session will give a quick introduction to RDA and the reasons for switching to a new standard. It will focus on why RDA is an important step forward for libraries and conclude with a brief look at the implementation process.

Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Time: 2pm (ET)

Taking the Leap: Managing a Successful Implementation of RDA
How does one go about implementing RDA? This session will look at several aspects of implementation, beginning with an overview of the transition. Topics include the steps that need to be considered, preparations for staff and systems, and different approaches to training.

Date: Thursday, April 18, 2013
Time: 2pm (ET)

Cost per webinar is:
  • CLA members: $25, groups $125
  • non-members: $40, groups $200
  • Members of Other Associations (AIIM, ARMA, CALL, CHLA, provincial associations, SLA, etc.) : $35, groups $150
