Product Details

Editorial Reviews


• Focuses on the new RDA rules and conventions and their implementation, particularly in smaller libraries where there are no professional catalogers

• Presents FRBR and other aspects of RDA's theoretical framework in understandable terms

• Features a step-by-step guide to creating bibliographic records for print and electronic books, videos, and other formats

• Includes quick guides, exercises, a glossary of terms, and a list of additional resources

"If you are new to the cataloging field or just beginning to implement RDA into your catalog records, this book is for you. . . . A useful, engaging, and well-­written book that is recommended to catalogers and staff in all libraries and cataloging instructors and their students."


Library Journal, Starred Review

"It gives the basics on RDA and provides a solid foundation. For those wondering where to start, The RDA Workbook is an excellent first step."


Technical Services Quarterly

"[T]here have been very few works that both make a concerted effort to guide catalogers to a clear understanding of the rules and the underlying theory, and that offer practical steps in creating RDA records. With The RDA Workbook, Mering and her colleagues have taken the first steps toward rectifying this deficiency . . . [They] have

provided a useful introduction to RDA. . . . This book is best viewed as an entry point, and Mering is very clear about this; it is meant for a general audience, and only gives a very basic outline of what RDA is and how it is to be used."


Library Resources and Technical Services

"The RDA Workbook is highly recommended for its coverage and approach, which facilitate teaching and learning the features and application of RDA as well as its implementation."



Book Description

RDA implementation will require a steep learning curve for small libraries.
