Target Audience: Catalogers, technical services librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify the changes in the MARC formats, which support compatibility with RDA (Resource Description and Access).
2. Participants will be able to explain how the changes will influence law material cataloging.

This presentation will explain the changes in MARC (MAchine-Readable Cataloging) to support compatibility with the upcoming cataloging standard, RDA (Resource Description and Access), and the likely influence of those changes on law material cataloging. For years, MARC has successfully supported previous cataloging content standards, such as AACR2. The new cataloging standard, RDA, is designed for our digital world, and is intended to provide more user-friendly access to all types of information resources. Accordingly, MARC formats need to change to facilitate data exchange of records using the new standard. What are those changes, and how will the changes affect law libraries? The presentation will focus on these topics and help law catalogers and other technical services librarians prepare for the RDA era.
