Cataloguing & Classification I

This course covers descriptive cataloguing for a range of material types, including choice and formulation of access points. The focus of the course is descriptive cataloguing as set out in Resource Description and Access (RDA) and on MARC21 coding. Students will learn how to find the appropriate cataloguing rule using the RDA Toolkit and how to apply the rules to material in a variety of formats. Students will also be made aware of how RDA differs from the previous standard, AACR2.
