Shaping tomorrow's metadata with RDA

Date: Wednesday, June 2, 2010
Time: 8:30 am - 5 pm
Location: Shaw Conference Centre, 9797 Jasper Avenue

Please note this event will NOT be webcast.


A new standard that will enable cataloguers to create metadata that is compatible with internationally established principles, models, and standards, RDA focuses on user tasks and the information users need. This year our focus will be on the new places where RDA is taking us and how RDA positions us for the next generation of resource description and resource discovery. Topics include: development and implementation in Canada and around the world; the effects of FRBRization on resource discovery; and, a presentation of the Metadata Service Toolkit and its potential use for transforming MARC data to RDA.
