Resource Description and Access (RDA) is the current North American library cataloging standard. This workshop (based in part on the Serials Cataloging Cooperative Training Program workshop), will offer an introduction to cataloging electronic serials with RDA. It will cover RDA and CONSER standards, core elements, and terminology with special attention paid to the differences in practice in the cataloging of print and electronic serials.  Attendees will participate in hands-on exercises which will include use of tools and documentation in support of cataloging with RDA. Knowledge of print serials cataloging practices is not required but attendees should be familiar with the MARC standard. Access to the PowerPoint presentation will be given to participants ahead of the workshop via email.
