Presentation given at the ALA Annual 2013 ALCTS Continuing Resources Cataloging Committee Update Forum. It highlights and summarizes the changes and impact of RDA on serials cataloging, but isn't meant as primary training materials.
Essentially “flipping AACR2 on it’s head” in terms of approachRDA starts with the content, describing the elements of the WORK first, then the EXPRESSION and MANIFESTATIONAACR2 is organized by format (carrier) – the tangible comes firstI largely work with web resources. So I have online books. Online videos. Online videos that are issued as serials. All of these things require me to review and cross reference and flip back and forth like an insane woman in AACR2 from chapter to chapter. The first and second examples both require using 2 chapters. The third example requires I use THREE distinct chapters in AACR2 to fully describe the thing I'm looking at since the format determines how the thing is described. This is not efficient.But core goal of making things findable (uniquely identifiable) is still the same
Manifestation level: e.g. (Online) in 130/240Differentiation is at work and expression levelSo same work but different carriers = same preferred title
Some manifestation changes do require a new description (e.g. new record) but NOT a new preferred title184.108.40.206: M220.127.116.11: M18.104.22.168: W – new preferred title22.214.171.124: W – new preferred title126.96.36.199: M

RDA Key points
RDA is fundamentally different in it's approach to
Focus on content *first* and carrier/format second
RDA cultivates relationships
“Guidelines and instructions” rather than rules
MARC record contains a mix of Group 1 WEMI
attributes as well as Group 2 and Group 3 entities.
MARC record: mix of work, expression, and manifestation
Change highlights: general
New MARC fields and subfields
Transcription – record what’s there!
Capitalization = RDA Appendix A
Source(s) – more flexible
Relationships for authorized access points
Required for the creator
RDA Appendix I
Rule of three – gone!
Be liberal in recording alternate titles
Related works are no longer in a general note field, but rather traced
so they can be linked
GMD replaced by 336 (content type), 337 (media type), 338 (carrier
Change highlights: serials
300 field is core for currently published, tangible non-print
Carrier type changes (338)
RDA 188.8.131.52: Create a new description if there is a change in
the carrier type of a serial to online resource from another
computer carrier, or vice versa
Omit numbering from title proper or parallel title (use mark of omission
wherever in title)
Some alternatives allow some conversions and some omissions for some
No more manifestation level differentiation
[Reminder]: ISSN key title (222) is at manifestation level, NOT
work or expression title, so key title and authorized access
point for the work may not match
Guidelines available on LC website
Goal: enhancing the record to improve user access (user
tasks: find, identify, select, and obtain)
DO NO HARM: If it's not wrong, leave it alone
Be nice: avoid editing just for style
Title changes for multiple carriers (print vs online vs
Keep title changes in sync across carriers?
