PCC email list subscribers,

CONSER is offering two CONSER RDA "bridge" webinar series (3 sessions per series) in March 2013.

CONSER RDA "bridge" training is intended for catalogers experienced in applying CONSER guidelines for AACR2 serials cataloging. The content is based on CONSER RDA core record elements, RDA training materials developed for LC catalogers, and material developed by trainers at other CONSER institutions.

The times, dates, and registration links for each series are listed below. Please note the registration deadlines. Each series covers the same content so please register for one series only.
