MINITEX Training Opportunities

RDA Original Cataloging Training for September 2014

September brings a trio of two-day, on-site Minitex workshops on original RDA cataloging.

Training will focus on practical matters via lecture and exercises: we will revisit FRBR, then step our way through the RDA text to build bibliographic records and access points for a variety of monographic materials. We will also take a look at RDA’s depictions of relationships in the catalog. Visit the links below for full workshop descriptions and registration details. Please note registration deadlines. Low enrollment will result in the rescheduling or cancellation of workshops.
