Metadata is going through a massive transformation. The RDA 3R project, BIBFRAME and other
linked data standards are changing the ways we provide access to information. How are these changes affecting the way you catalog?
Join Amigos Library Services and keynote speaker, Kathy Glennan, Chair-Elect of the RDA Steering Committee, by submitting a presentation sharing your experiences, ideas and innovations
about the future of cataloging. Our online conference will take place on Thursday, November 8.
Suggested topics include:
The new RDA and its effect on your library’s cataloging practices
New RDA entities and elements
RDA recording methods
RDA and Linked data
The RDA Toolkit 3R project
Adding linked data URLs to access points in preparation for BIBFRAME
Transitioning from MARC to BIBFRAME
Linked Data cataloging workflows
Changes to MARC Bibliographic and Authorities formats reflecting the new RDA
New practices in creating authority records (linked data URIs)
Schema.org and other ways to make library holdings appear in web search results
Cataloging nonbook formats, including, but not limited to: audio recordings, video recordings, eBooks, music.
If you can speak to one of these topics, or have another idea in mind, please
submit your proposal here by September 14, 2018.
Don't worry if you’ve never presented online. It’s easy, and we are happy to train you and will provide technical support during your presentation.
