Target Audience: Technical services librarians, administrators

Learning Outcomes:
1) Participants will benefit from hearing about other law librarians’ real-life experiences with RDA and will learn how to successfully implement Resource Description Access (RDA) in their libraries.
2) Participants will be able to assess the impact of RDA implementation on their online library catalogs.

Three U.S. national libraries are expected to implement the new cataloging code, RDA, beginning January 2013. Law catalogers who participated in the RDA testing process and training during the fall of 2010 and the spring of 2011 described their experiences at “The TS-SIS Hot Topic program: The RDA Decision and What It Means for Me and My Library!” in Philadelphia in 2011. The two law libraries represented at that program have decided to implement RDA well before the U.S. national libraries do so. Law catalogers from those libraries will share their experiences transitioning from AACR2 to RDA, and discuss the impact on workflow, productivity, OPAC displays, and information retrieval.
