RDA in a Day

We are pleased to announce a repeat of the successful RDA in a Day training course – and this time, we’re offering it in two locations (Sheffield and London) to make it available to a wider audience!

RDA in a Day is a practical introduction to cataloguing with RDA: Resource Description and Access, led by two RDA specialists from the British Library. The course will cover the FRBR model and RDA terminology. This is an interactive, hands-on course in which trainees will learn by using RIMMF and the RDA Toolkit to create RDA records. The day also covers creation of RDA records in MARC 21. Prior cataloguing experience and knowledge of AACR2 and MARC 21 will be an advantage.
