The CILIP Cataloguing & Indexing Group (CIG) is pleased to announce a repeat of the successful RDA in a Day training course.
RDA in a Day is a practical introduction to cataloguing with RDA: Resource Description and Access. Led by two RDA specialists from the British Library, the course will cover the FRBR model and RDA terminology. This is an interactive, hands-on course in which trainees will learn by using RIMMF and the RDA Toolkit to create RDA records. The day also covers creation of RDA records in MARC 21. Prior cataloguing experience and knowledge of AACR2 and MARC 21 will be an advantage. Places are limited to maintain an excellent trainer/trainee ration so that you get the most out of your day.
Closing date for bookings: 21 April 2017
Please note that invoices will not be issued until shortly after the event.
We are pleased to be able to offer a sponsored place for this event.
