    DescriptionThis book addresses RDA along with traditional examples of cataloguing like MARC, MODS, and Dublin Core. Streaming video, Internet sites, dual-disc DVDs, blogs and listservs are just some of the rapidly emerging, and often complicated, new resources covered in this current, easy-to-follow manual. Separate chapters are dedicated to each non-print and e-resource format, and include corresponding examples to help demonstrate practical implementation of these critical new skills. A companion CD-ROM contains fully-worked out examples, models and illustrations, and acts as an important visual guide to help reinforce key concepts. In addition, a companion website provides updates on changes in RDA and other cataloguing resources and practices; links to presentations, blog posts, etc; and a means to contact the authors with questions and feedback. Readership: Cataloguers, LIS students and information professionals and support staff using integrated library systems, searching OCLC, and applying and interpreting Library of Congress Classification and Subject Headings.

    Review quote
    "...highly recommended for technical services staff struggling with changing cataloguing rules for certain types of nonbook materials." -- Technicalities "A practical guide for using both the old standard (AACR) and the new (RDA: Resource Description and Access). Mary Beth Weber and Fay Angela Austin have prepared a commonsense guide to using the new code." -- American Libraries "This is an up-to-date and handy desk reference for catalogers of electronic, digital cartographic, sound, video, Internet, database, and other mixed media. It's also suitable for non-tech services librarians...With a useful CD-ROM for step-by-step help and a companion website that will be updated as necessary. Recommended." -- Library Journal
