RDA for Copy Cats: 2 part NEFLIN webinar (April 1 and April 3, 2014)
Copy cataloging is becoming somewhat more complicated, as various important creators of MARC records gradually switch from following AACR rules to following RDA instructions for the records they make. RDA/MARC records certainly look different than AACR/MARC records, and so do the Hybrid AACR/MARC records that are also showing up for you to copy. But the good news is that there are some straightforward patterns in the RDA instructions that will help clarify the changes that RDA brings to our copy cataloging process.

For those who couldn't join us for the NEFLIN Technology Conference (and you know who you are) here is a link to the presentations.
It was a great day of fun and learning. We were pleased that the event was so popular that we had to increase capacity to accommodate 125 members.
Keynote speaker, Lee Rainie, was fantastic. If you get an opportunity to hear him speak...do so. I liked his self-description as "a fast talker that could have had a second career as a prescription medicine side effects reader" (you may have to think about that for a bit).
Thanks go out to the Florida Division of Library and Information Services for funding this conference. We look forward to bringing this event to you again in 2015!
