Bernadette, Thank you for sharing all this! It is very much appreciated. Shared open documentation has been indispensable to us so far in looking at RDA, and there are some very useful looking bits of the Oxford documentation too. I do hope that RDA itself can one day be as open.
Thanks, Tom --- Thomas Meehan Head of Current Cataloguing Library Services University College London Gower Street London WC1E 6BT t.mee...@ucl.ac.uk From: Resource Description and Access / Resource Description and Access [mailto:RDA-L@LISTSERV.LAC-BAC.GC.CA] On Behalf Of Bernadette O'Reilly Sent: 12 December 2013 14:29 To: RDA-L@LISTSERV.LAC-BAC.GC.CA Subject: [RDA-L] Bodleian/OLIS RDA materials Dear colleagues, The Bodleian Libraries and Oxford Library Information System are pleased to be able to make their inhouse RDA documentation publicly available at http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/our-work/cataloguing. It includes brief transfer training materials for experienced cataloguers and comprehensive materials for training from scratch and for reference, all available under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. Because we have a very large number of cataloguers scattered over many libraries, some of whom do only small amounts of cataloguing, our documentation is designed to be fairly free-standing. We have to keep contact sessions to the minimum, and we do not expect all cataloguers to gain a detailed knowledge of FRBR or of the RDA Toolkit. We benefited greatly from seeing other agencies' materials when we were planning our RDA implementation, and we hope that our materials may be of some use or interest to agencies who are currently planning their own implementation. Comments and corrections are very welcome (c...@bodleian.ox.ac.uk<mailto:c...@bodleian.ox.ac.uk>).
