  • 1.  Don't Be Afraid of RDA!

    Posted Feb 15, 2013 01:14 PM

    RDA is almost here! Many institutions will begin actively using RDA in their cataloging workflows as of the launch date of March 31, 2013. Experienced map catalogers and long-time MAGIRT members Paige Andrew and Susan Moore are preparing to assist those catalogers wanting to (or just plain needing to!) learn about RDA-based changes to cataloging cartographic materials.

    If RDA and cartographic materials sound scary, then let MAGIRT ease your fears on June 30, 2013 from
    8:30 – 10 am in Chicago at Annual 2013!
