TSIG Pre-conference Materials on RDA Posted

If you remember, last year the Technical Services Interest Group had a pre-conference all on RDA. This year, on June 2, they had another full day on RDA. Lucky for us that they again posted the presentation materials at:http://tsig.wikispaces.com/Pre-conference+2010

Unlike last year, there will be no webcast. However, here’s the agenda:

A new standard that will enable cataloguers to create metadata that is compatible with internationally established principles, models, and standards, RDA focuses on user tasks and the information users need. This year our focus will be on the new places where RDA is taking us and how RDA positions us for the next generation of resource description and resource discovery. Topics include: development and implementation in Canada and around the world; the effects of FRBRization on resource discovery; and, a presentation of the Metadata Service Toolkit and its potential use for transforming MARC data to RDA.
