Structure of RDA - General structure (1)

Cambridge University Library RDA Toolkit Training session Adapted for Cambridge use by Janet Davis Structure of RDA - General structure (1) Table of contents

General introduction Identifying elements (entities and attributes) Ch. 1-7: work, expression, manifestation, item Ch. 8-11: person, family, corporate body Ch. 12-16: concept, object, event, place Relationships: Ch. 17-22, 24-32 Appendices Glossary

Index 2 Structure of RDA General structure (2) Unlike AACR2, not organised by class of materials Instead, arranged around user tasks to help users identify and relate resources Each section begins with a chapter of general guidelines. Subsequent chapters include instructions that support one of

the user tasks E.g. in Section 1: Chapter 1: General guidelines Chapter 2: FRBR task = Identify Chapter 3: FRBR task = Select 3 Structure of RDA General structure (3) RDA addresses each element within a chapter separately

When necessary to assemble elements, e.g. into authorised access points, the instructions for doing this are found at the end of the appropriate chapter (see especially chapters 6, 911) 4 Structure of RDA Core-ness (1) Based on attributes mandatory for a national level record (FRBR/FRAD)

Defined at the element level Always Core if situation described Core elements listed: as a group in RDA 0.6 separately in appropriate chapters, always clearly labelled with light blue text 5

6 Structure of RDA Core-ness (2) Many libraries have identified additional elements which they regard as core for their own (original) cataloguing, and Cambridge is no exception The Cam Core elements are defined both in the Cambridge RDA Standard Record and in the Cambridge Monograph

Workflow within Toolkit You are also likely to come across the LC Core elements, as recorded in the LC-PCC PSs (the RDA equivalents of the LCRIs) 7 8

Structure of RDA - Alternatives, Options, Exceptions Clearly labelled in the RDA Toolkit by green vertical bars and legends Alternatives to an instruction Options Additional data Omission of data Exceptions (often for specific types of resource)

Local policies and cataloguers judgement 9 10 Structure of RDA - Examples Illustrate the specific instruction under which they appear Normally given without showing preceding or enclosing

punctuation Appear in yellow shading 11 12 RDA Extras - LC-PCC PSs To facilitate a standard interpretation and application of

alternatives, options, and exceptions Apply LC-PCC PSs unless directed otherwise Follow green link in Toolkit 13 RDA Extras - Workflows A workflow for cataloguing monographs

in RDA to Cambridge standards is available Access is from the Tools tab within Toolkit Links to all the relevant RDA instructions, LCPCC PSs, etc. 14

What next? RDA Toolkit Essentials webinar (from November 2012) RDA Toolkit exercises for hands-on practice A handout of resources to find out more about the RDA Toolkit http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/libraries/login/RDA/
