  1. Cataloging Unique Collections with RDA and Non-MARC Standards Melanie Wacker Metadata Coordinator Columbia University Libraries Jan. 21, 2012 ALA Midwinter

  2. RDA--Resource Description & Access • New cataloging code developed by the Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA (JSC) to replace AACR2 • Based on AACR2 • Conceptual models: FRBR and FRAD • Consists of the content standard, RDA elements and value vocabularies • "RDA provides a comprehensive set of guidelines and instructions covering all types of content and media." ("Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA," last modified December 9, 2010, http://www.rda-jsc.org/)

  3. Non-MARC Records in the U.S. RDA Test • 10,570 MARC bibliographic recordsand 12,800 authority records created by the 26 test partners • Common Original Set: 5 Dublin Core records • Extra Original Set: 25 in Dublin Core, 22 in MODS, and 2 in EAD • Non-MARC records mostly “describing unpublished resources” • “... Non-MARC records provided a very detailed level of description” • RDA core elements not applied consistently (U.S. RDA Test Coordinating Committee. (2011). Report and Recommendations of the U.S. RDA Test Coordinating Committee, 149, 66-67, accessed Dec. 29, 2011 http://www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future/rda/source/rdatesting-finalreport-20june2011.pdf)

  4. TestIssues • No benchmark records • Training focused on MARC and published resources • In Libraries non-MARC standards are generally used to catalog unique collections • No shared cataloging utility for non-MARC format records • Test focused on RDA as a content standard

  5. Non-MARC Testing at CUL • Non-MARC records created by the Metadata Coordinator with support from members of CUL's Metadata Group.  • Metadata Coordinator participated in RDA training (all MARC based) • Non-MARC standards used: MODS (11), Dublin Core (2), EAD (2) • Resources for the test were selected from various digital projects representing CUL's unique collections.

  6. Resources Cataloged at CUL  2 Websites of Human rights organizations (Dublin Core) 2 Finding aids for archival collections (EAD) 2 Digitized pamphlets (MODS) 3 Digital projects (MODS) 1 Digitized drawing (MODS) 1 Digitized envelope (MODS) 1 Digitized photograph (MODS) 1 Digitized invoice (MODS) 1 Digitized painting (MODS) 1 Digitized rare book (MODS)

  7. Issues One-to-one Principle Relationships FRBR Relationship Designators Core Elements

  8. One-to-one Principle One resource = one description

  9. MODS Aquifer Guidelines recommend that “metadata about content and digital and analog carriers all appear in the main record.” “Digital Library Federation/Aquifer Implementation guidelines for shareable metadata records (version 1.1), access Jan. 6, 2012, https://wiki.dlib.indiana.edu/download/attachments/24288/DLFMODS_ImplementationGuidelines.pdf

  10. RDA Rules on Reproductions: Base the description on the facsimile or reproduction (RDA 1.11)

  11. Relationships • Electronic reproduction of (item)? • Electronic reproduction of (manifestation)?
