Teaching RDA in the LIS Classroom: Report and Webinar

  • 1.  Teaching RDA in the LIS Classroom: Report and Webinar

    Posted 11 days ago

    In September 2021, Elisa Sze of the University of Toronto was appointed to the position of Education and Orientation Officer for the RDA Steering Committee (RSC). Her charge as EOO is to liaise with LIS educators and instructors across multiple regions, creating an informal network of RDA educators and instructors and feeding the perspectives and needs of the educational community back to the RSC.

    To this end, she submitted the Report on Approaches to Teaching RDA in the LIS Classroom to the RSC in November 2022. This report draws on insights gathered from a year-long series of informal, in-person interviews over Zoom with a variety of educators and offers library and information science (LIS) educators a possible approach for incorporating the official RDA Toolkit into courses about metadata creation and cataloguing. 

    Elisa Sze will present her report and take questions at a free webinar to be held on Friday, February 24th at 11:00 am EDT -- Register Here.
