Cataloging Rare Materials with the Official Toolkit and DCRMR

The official RDA Toolkit introduces new elements and a new structure from the original Toolkit. To facilitate adoption of the official Toolkit, in 2022 the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section's Bibliographic Standards Committee published Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials: RDA Edition (DCRMR), an RDA-aligned standard.

This 90-minute webinar will present practical guidance on cataloging rare materials with RDA. The webinar will walk participants through cataloging rare books with the official Toolkit and DCRMR using concrete, step-by-step instructions. At the end of the webinar, attendees will be prepared to begin creating records for rare materials using DCRMR and RDA.
