Resource Description and Access <> (RDA) is a
standard for descriptive cataloging, replacing AACR2, that provides
instructions and guidelines on formulating bibliographic data in a linked
data environment. Cataloging of special materials, such as reproductions,
microforms, rare materials, etc. has always had unique requirements, which
is also true when using RDA for serials cataloging. Catalogers dealing
with these special materials are experimenting with using RDA to meet the
needs of their users and staff to effectively describe these resources.

Presenters during this joint NISO/NASIG Webinar will explore the topic of
specialized RDA cataloging, the different formats requiring an extra level
of data for cataloging, and share experiences with converting specialized
collections into RDA.
