Create a strong foundation in music cataloging with RDA!
Cataloging Music Resources in RDA
with Sonia Archer-Capuzzo
Beginning Monday, June 5, 2017
Are you struggling with cataloging music in your library? The latest release of RDA: Resource Description and Access, on February 7, 2015, now includes the addition of Music Library Association's Best Practices for Music Cataloging (MLA BP). ALA Publishing presents this popular returning eCourse, Cataloging Music Resources in RDA facilitated by Sonia Archer-Capuzzo, which explores the unique challenges of cataloging music resources and focuses on how RDA Toolkit meets these challenges. More and more libraries are making the switch to RDA cataloging, and training like this becomes more important to the process.
This 4-week eCourse includes scores, audio recordings, and a brief overview of video recordings. To be successful in this eCourse, you will be expected to understand cataloging practices and the basic tenets of RDA, FRBR, and MARC prior to starting the course. Throughout the weeks, you’ll delve into the details of description, preferred titles, authorized access points, and relationships. Each week will consist of a combination of readings, pre-recorded lectures, interactive hands-on activities, and discussions between Archer-Capuzzo and your classmates. This course will provide you with a network with whom to interact and learn from—a support system for one another to help explain concepts in different ways, point out helpful resources, and provide encouragement.
After participating in this eCourse, you will:
- Recognize the primary traits of RDA records for music resources. (Bloom’s Taxonomy: Knowledge, Comprehension)
- Apply RDA rules to music resources to create original records for scores, sound recordings, and video recordings.(Bloom’s Taxonomy: Application, Synthesis)
- Identify the differences between Works, Expressions, Manifestations, and Items and how those differences affect cataloging of music materials. (Bloom’s Taxonomy: Analysis)
- Interpret the instructions in RDA Toolkit in order to create high-quality catalog records for music resources. (Bloom’s Taxonomy: Evaluation)
