Hi, to all RDA curious:
Although RDA seems confusing and looming on the horizon like a
thundercloud, there are MANY good sources of information online and in
print that explain RDA, its basis, its effects. Below is a partial list of
online presentations you can watch, slides and exercise sheets to follow
through. In addition to the free materials, there are also some books,
online one-time courses and a 4-week course in later in the spring.
Finally, I've included one of the presenters' lists of more places to find
RDA instruction and documentation. This is just a selection that I have
found--searching online for RDA, FRBR, webinars will find much more.
Looks like we'll be keeping busy!
