National implementation of Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new cataloging rules, is right around the corner. Are you ready? Please come to a week long, hands on workshop on cataloging using RDA sponsored by the Utah State Library and Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library. The Lee Library participated in the National Test of RDA during 2010 and has adopted RDA as its cataloging standard. With more than two years experience cataloging using the code, the Library is well equipped to help others in Utah implement the new standard. The workshop will be from the ground up, so catalogers with any level of experience are welcome.

Time: 9 AM to 4 or 5 PM ( depending on how much we get through)
Audience: Catalogers from public, academic, and special libraries
Instructors: John Wright, head of general cataloging at the Lee Library; Robert L. Maxwell, author of Maxwell's Handbook for AACR2 (ALA 2004), and the forthcoming Maxwell's Handbook for RDA (ALA).
Required: RDA Toolkit. It will be provided at the workshop site, and a free 30 day trial is available. The State Library will pay for a 1 year subscription for attendees. Turn in your receipt within 60 days after the event to get reimbursed, maximum reimbursement: $325 per institution. Note: You must attend to qualify.
