RDA: Strategies for Implementation, 2nd edition

Magda El-Sherbini

El-Sherbini’s guide, which won the 2014 ALCTS Outstanding Publication Award, has been completely updated to reflect the maturing landscape of RDA.

Starting with a comparison of the conceptual background and structure of RDA to AACR2, she then moves beyond theory to show real-world examples of implementation, illustrated with many clear examples of the new MARC21 fields in use.

A valuable roadmap for RDA novices as well as a ready reference for practitioners, this book

  • traces the history of RDA and the transition from AACR
  • presents detailed strategies on implementing RDA, from general training tips to decision making, integrating new RDA records with legacy records, exporting RDA-based bibliographic records, vendor services, and much more, covering every aspect of daily practice
  • addresses FRBR-driven tasks, FRBR-Group relationships, and principles of FRAD, including how FRAD impacts the RDA application
  • offers brand new chapters on Work and Expression, Work and Expression for Special Materials, Authorized Access Points, and Relationships Among Entities
  • provides updated guidance on getting the most out of RDA Toolkit.

Readership: Cataloguers, LIS students, archivists and any cataloguing professional wanting to gain a better understanding of the new cataloguing standard.
