When: Friday, February 4, 2011
What time:  9:00 - 4:00 central standard time
Where:  Online - The comfort of your office

RDA @ Your Library will provide both basic and advanced information on
Resource Description and Access (RDA), covering a variety of topics
including an RDA background/overview (FRBR and FRAD concepts), RDA
training, RDA as Data (including a background on the concept of changes
needed to library metadata), and why RDA might not be the right choice
for libraries. Additionally, various Integrated Library Systems vendors
will present on their intentions towards RDA. ALA Publishing will
present on AACR2 to RDA from the co-publishers perspective. An OCLC
representative will discuss the OCLC plans regarding RDA.

Resource Description and Access (RDA) was released June 23, 2010. It was
designed to replace the existing Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd
Edition (AACR2). Prior to implementation, the USA National Libraries
(Library of Congress, National Library of Medicine, and the National
Agriculture Library) determined to test RDA to assure the operational,
technical, and economic feasibility of RDA. See more on the testing
process and partnerships on the Library of Congress website

Come to the RDA @ Your Library conference to get the information you
need to make an informed decision for your library.  Seating is limited
and early bird registration ends Jan 21, 2011.  To learn more and to
