Email from Chew Chiat Naun:

The RDA study group will be holding its first meeting on Friday,
October 1, at 10 a.m. in Wilson S30B. This will be the first of a
series of meetings, held twice a month, to review and discuss records
that U of M cataloguing staff have created in RDA. These are the
records we will be submitting to LC as our contribution to the RDA
test.

All are welcome to attend, including Minitex and coordinate campus
staff. For anyone not able to attend in person we will have a
UMConnect and conference line hookup option. The UMConnect link for
the first meeting will be https://umconnect.umn.edu/rdatest20101001/.
If you want to join on the conference line please send me an email.

The initial members of the group are Tony Fang, Cecilia Genereux,
Stephen Hearn, Mary Huismann, Linda Lomker, Karen Olson, Doris Seely,
and Stacie Traill. However, anyone who would like to participate in
the group or who would like to try their hand at producing an RDA
record is welcome to do so.

For documentation relating to record requirements for the RDA test see

We have a wiki page at https://wiki.lib.umn.edu/TS/RDA. Notes from our
initial planning meeting are at

From Minitex:

New Course

RDA for Non-Catalogers: A Gentle Introduction

http://www.minitex.umn.edu/Training/Details.aspx?SessionID=315


Implementation of Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new manual of cataloging rules designed to succeed AACR2, has the potential to affect many library activities outside of the cataloging department: from the acquisition of new materials to reference interactions with the catalog user. This brief webinar will introduce participants to RDA, describe how to locate RDA records in OCLC's WorldCat database, and highlight some of the changes the new guidelines may bring to your library catalog.

And we still have seats available for these early winter sessions of RDA: What It Is, and What It Means to You.
