Three presentations will be featured on the topic of Resource Description & Access:

Judith Cannan, Chief, Cooperative & Instructional Programs Division, Library of Congress, will discuss the Library of Congress RDA training plan for staff located in the U.S. and in LC's overseas offices.

Cynthia Whitacre, Manager, WorldCat Quality & Partner Content Department, OCLC: OCLC members were invited early in 2012 to share comments on the OCLC discussion paper on RDA. Cynthia will share feedback received from member libraries on implementation of RDA and what the next steps will be for OCLC. Initial plans for OCLC member training, revised OCLC documentation, and what to expect in WorldCat bibliographic records with RDA implementation by the US national libraries in 2013 will be included.

Chris Cronin, Director of Technical Services, University of Chicago, will give background on how the University of Chicago implemented RDA, and will discuss policies and procedures for handling copy when found in the utilities, whether it be RDA or not. Chris will explain why the University of Chicago implemented RDA immediately after the formal test, challenges they encountered, and the impact on staff and training.
