ALA ALCTS CCS Cataloging Norms Interest Group
ALA Midwinter Program, San Diego
Saturday, Jan. 8, 2011, 1:30-3:30 p.m.
SDCC-Room 25C

All are invited to attend the meeting of the Cataloging Norms Interest
Group in San Diego on Saturday, Jan. 8 from 1:30 to 3:30, featuring four
speakers on the theme of preparation for RDA during the testing phase.

1. VTLS's RDA Implementation Scenario One (FRBR).
     John Espley, VTLS, Inc.

Insights and processes from VTLS's 8 years of experience with FRBR and RDA

2. Sky River's Approach to the RDA Test Period
     Lynne Branch Brown (Vice President of Operations, Sky River)

Sky River is taking a different approach to the RDA test period by
allowing variant versions of bib records in the catalog, so that libraries
have access to the form they need in their local catalog when looking for
records. We have built-in mechanisms to identify RDA records when they are
contributed to our database which allow them to remain separate from their
AACR2 equivalent.

3. The Impact of RDA Authority Records on a Non-RDA Test Library
     Miloche Kottman (Assistant Head of Cataloging, University of Kansas Libraries)

The University of Kansas Libraries has close to 10 million authority
records comprised of the entire LC name and subject authority files, as
well as locally created authority headings in both files. We are not an
RDA test library but we are loading RDA authority and bib records into our
Voyager system. Based on our weekly load statistics, I will provide
information on how many RDA authority records have been created and how
many AACR2 authority records have been modified to add the RDA form as a
7xx field since Oct. 1. I'll also share our authority maintenance
experience during the test period and our plans to handle bib record
changes in the event of the adoption or rejection of RDA.

4. RDA testing on Non-MARC Metadata Standards

     Myung-Ja "MJ" Han, Metadata Librarian, Assistant Professor of Library
     Administration, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign

     Melanie Wacker, Metadata Coordinator, Original Serial & Monograph
     Cataloging, Butler Library, Columbia University Libraries)

     Judith Dartt Digitization Manager at Special Collections Research
     Center University of Chicago Library

The Columbia University Library and the University of Illinois at Urbana
Champaign Library participated in RDA testing on metadata standards other
than MARC. Since the RDA test was focused on MARC, the test workflows for
the non-MARC standards were developed by each individual library. The
presentation will share the non-MARC testing experience from both
libraries, specifically working with MODS and Dublin Core including the
test set-ups and issues encountered when applying RDA to MODS and the
Dublin Core element set.
