Share |

Cataloging Digital Media Using Current and Emerging Standards (AACR2, RDA, and MARC)

Nearly fifty librarians enhanced and developed their digital media cataloging skills at a workshop presented by CLA's Technical Services Interest Group at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose on May 18, 2011.

The workshop broke new ground for CLA by being offered simultaneously as a hybrid virtual and face-to-face program, and it was attended by a diverse group of California librarians and others from a variety of libraries around the country (including NY, TN, TX, AK, and Washington, D.C.), as well as librarians from British Columbia and Newfoundland.

The workshop included an overview presentation about RDA and some of the basic changes that RDA may bring to the future of cataloging digital media. The thread of RDA was woven throughout all of the various media types discussed. The workshop provided practical information on the descriptive cataloging of digital media including DVD-Video, Blu-Ray discs, DVD-Audio, DualDisc, DVD-ROM, Playaways and Streaming Media, highlighting some of the more recent cataloging guides published by OLAC (Online Audiovisual Catalogers, Inc.). There was also discussion about another emerging standard , namely, provider-neutral records and the BIBCO Standard Record Metadata Application Profiles (BSR MAPs) that are on the horizon for digital media cataloging.

The workshop was presented by a dynamic group of speakers:

  • Jay Weitz from OCLC in Dublin, Ohio
  • Anchalee (Joy) Panigabutra-Roberts from University of Nebraska – Lincoln
  • Julie Moore from California State University, Fresno
  • Robert Ellett, Ph.D., San Jose State University’s School of Library and Information Science and Joint Forces Staff College’s Ike Skelton Library (Norfolk, VA)
