Discusses the basic issues relating to bibliographic control of maps and related materials. Discusses rules and standards covering such cataloging, as well as application of the rules and principles both in general and in response to specific problems, and various practicing options.
This group is part of Core's Metadata & Collections Section.
At the most recent ALCTS CaMMS/MAGIRT Cartographic Resources Cataloging Interest Group at ALA Annual we discussed creating a dedicated forum for discussing the cataloging of cartographic materials using RDA.
The new MAGIRT RDA (email@example.com) listserv is devoted solely to the cataloging of cartographic materials using RDA and related topics.
The list is intended to provide an ongoing and open forum for the cartographic resources community to discuss topics, exchange ideas, pose questions, and receive answers about using RDA to catalog all types of cartographic materials. In addition to providing an informal and welcoming environment for discussion, we hope that the list will help to inform the development of a set of MAGIRT RDA cataloging “best practices” for the cartographic resources community.
