The authorized concise guide to RDA now available

Co-published by Facet Publishing, ALA and CLA, RDA Essentials is the new concise guide to cataloguing with RDA (Resource Description and Access) and is essential reading for those seeking a simplified path to creating basic RDA records.

Useful as a quick reference source, author Thomas Brenndorfer describeBrenndorfer_cvr_PC_CC.indds the key RDA concepts and vocabulary and distils RDA instructions, matching them to cataloguing practice in easy-to-follow language. The guide is fully up-to-date with the latest revisions to RDA, making it an excellent introduction whilst also serving as a bridge to more complex cataloguing

RDA Essentials is an ideal resource for:

  • small libraries that require standard cataloguing
  • LIS students who need an introduction to cataloguing
  • professionals seeking a ready reference source to RDA
  • experienced cataloguers needing a quick summary of RDA practice.

 

A handy access point for solo and part-time cataloguers, Brenndorfer’s guide also supports training and classroom use in any size institution. It will be useful reading for cataloguers and metadata specialists, systems librarians, user services managers, electronic resources librarians, and digital library project managers and students on cataloguing, information management and digital library courses.
