RDA and Serials
It really isn’t so bad. Seriously.
Field Changes
• 130: Distinguishing Uniform/Preferred Titles
• Usage greatly expanded in RDA, e.g.,
o CSR AACR2: Create/add a uniform title only in the case of monographic
series and “generic” titles. Note language editions/translations in the 730,
using $l to record the language.
o RDA (CSR): Create/add a preferred title if “the authorized access point is
the same as the authorized access point of another work.” Language
editions/translations, along with the $l, has moved to the 130.
NC Serials Conference March 15,
2013
Field Changes
• 245$h: General Material
Designator has been
supplanted by the:
o 336: Content type
o 337: Media type
o 338: Carrier type
o Other Carrier types applicable to
serials include:
• “computer disc”
• and “microfiche”
NC Serials Conference March 15,
2013
Field Changes
• 260: Publication, Distribution, Etc. has been
replaced by the …
• 264: Production, Publication, Distribution, Etc.
o And the $c is back, if piece in hand.
NC Serials Conference March 15,
2013
Field Changes
• 300: Extent
o AACR2 CSR: 300 field only used to describe tangible non-print formats,
o RDA (CSR): Additionally required “provide extent and carrier terms for
other formats if the resource is complete and the total extent is known.”

Transcription
• “Transcribe what you see” in the resource.
• But PCC Libraries may choose not to transcribe
capital letters as seen in the source.
• And non-PCC libraries may choose not to accept
the dictates of RDA at all(?)
NC Serials Conference March 15,
2013
Hybrid Environment
• Accept what you see in the record.
• The usual philosophy of “do no harm” prevails.
• RDA is the future though.
• OCLC decreed on June 15, 2010 that:
o no RDA record may be converted to AACR2;
o no duplicate record may be created based on a different cataloging
standard;
• LC and PCC will ultimately cease to support AACR2.
FRBR in the Bib
• FRBR concepts form the foundation of RDA: What
this means in a bib record is that:
• A Work is defined in part by its:
o Creator/Other person, family, or corporate body: 1XX
o Preferred title; Form; Date of work; Place of origin; Other distinguishing
characteristics: 130/240
o Related work: 7XX fields (not incl. 773, 774, 787)
FRBR in the Bib
• A Work is realized through its Expression.
• An Expression is defined in part by its:
o
o
o
o
o
o
Language of expression: 008/35-37, 041/546
Language of the content: 041, 546
Script: 546
Date of expression: 130/240
Content type: 336
Related expression: 7XX fields (not incl. 773, 774, 787)
NC Serials Conference March 15,
2013
FRBR in the Bib
• An Expression is accessible via its Manifestation,
which is the content carrier.
• A Manifestation is defined in part by the:
022, 030 Manifestation ID
245 Title proper
264 Production, Distribution, etc.
300 Extent
337 Media type
338 Carrier type
362 Numeric and/or alphabetic designation
76X-787: Related Manifestation for format versions (776) and
reproductions (775)
o 588: Source of description

NC Serials Conference March 15,

FRBR in the Bib
• A Manifestation is acquired by a given library in the
form of an Item, which is “piece in hand.”
• An Item is defined in part by its:
o 76X-787 Related item for reproductions and bound withs.
o But really, the item is defined by its barcode, even its actual self.
• FRBR is tricky to apply to serials cataloging.
• FRBR Concepts of Find, Identify, Select, Obtain are
natural to all cataloging.
NC Serials Conference March 15,
2013
Training
• RDA does not significantly impact serials cataloging.
• Interim period in which records will be produced
more slowly and will require more time to review is
the only significant impact to cataloging workflows.
• CONSER RDA “Bridge” Training Webinars will be
made public by June 2013.
• SCCTP CONSER Basic Serials Cataloging training
materials will be available in late 2013.
• OCLC has created a macro to produce the 33X
fields.

RDA and…
(e)Integrating
Resources
Training resources (now)
• PCC Task Group on Hybrid Integrating Resource
Records Final report, April 25, 2012
o When to redescribe pre-RDA records using RDA?
o What RDA elements can be added to pre-RDA records (creation
of hybrid records)
o Caveats for editing pre-RDA records using RDA
o Section on revisions needed to IR Cataloging Manual highlights
major changes to RDA IR cataloging
• RDA Record Examples: Records for Serials and
Websites: PCC SCT RDA Record Examples
o Includes records for 1 database and 3 Web sites
o “the records are consistent with revisions made to RDA that were
included in the April 10, 2012 release of the RDA Toolkit”
Training resources (on the
way)
• Revision of: Integrating Resources: A Cataloging
Manual (Appendix A to the BIBCO Participants’
Manual and Module 35 of the CONSER Cataloging
Manual)
o Initial work was to be completed in late August 2012.
o Expected completion: ???
• Revision of: SCCTP Integrating Resources Workshop
o Expected completion: ???
Changes: redescription
• The PCC recommendation is to redescribe a preRDA record using RDA whenever the latest iteration
of the resource is available.
o “However, the final decision should be left up to the cataloger (or
institutional policy).”
Workload,
Workflow, Training
Changes: Preferred source
of title info
• Affects eIRs only
• RDA 2.2.2.4: “…Use as the preferred source of
information…embedded metadata in textual form
that contains a title…”
Searching
OCLC,
CopyCat
Changes: Additions to access
points representing works
• RDA 6.27.1.9 and associated LC-PCC PS
• In RDA, overall, we see more differentiation of
access points for works (i.e. more “uniform titles”)
Searching OCLC,
CopyCat
RDA and…
the OPAC
Disclaimer/Caveats
• Due to different…
o ILSs (and their limitations)
o OPAC/discovery layer configurations
o Local practice and needs…
• Every library’s RDA OPAC strategy/needs may differ
• Focus on immediate issues, not eventual possibilities
No more GMD – It
depends…
• No more $h [electronic resource] or $h [serial]
• If OPAC display/scoping is based on fixed field
coding, this isn’t as big a deal
• If any aspect of OPAC display/scoping depends on
GMD, you’ve got work to do!
• Some libraries are opting to retain GMD locally
• Impact on backend users (us!)
o Finding the right record in backend ILS
o Alert public services librarians to the coming change
• Their training/LibGuides/etc. for users may need updating
336/337/338 – No worries
• Content, Media, and Carrier Type fields
• Not very user-friendly – Not being displayed in
SearchTRLN
• Too early to base scoping on these -- fixed-fields are
more reliable at this point
• Possible use: generate “GMD-like labels” where
GMD is missing (but this is currently not supported by
ILSs)
264 – Priority!
•

•
•
Must display in OPAC to show imprint information!

Relator terms/codes – If
you haven’t yet…
• Use of $e (relator term) and $4 (relator code) in
headings will increase with RDA
• What does your authority vendor or workflow do
about these?
• How are they displayed and indexed in the OPAC?
