SEPTLA meeting at Westminster Theological Seminary

Morning session (75 min.): Cataloging with RDA

RDA is more than an updated set of cataloging rules. Based on the
principles of FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records),
RDA presents a new way of thinking about organizing information. This
presentation will explore the changes that catalogers can expect in
their daily work as a result of the implementation of RDA. Special
emphasis will be given to issues concerning catalogers in theological


Afternoon session (90 min.): RDA - Not Just for Catalogers

RDA (Resource Description and Access) is a new descriptive standard for
cataloging. Based on new ways of organizing information, this innovation
in bibliographic description relates not only to the world of technical
services. This presentation will explore the impact of RDA on libraries,
librarians and library users.
