RDA and Cartographic Resources



In order to ease through the RDA: Resource Description and Access transition, specialist cataloguers need information on managing the materials in their areas of responsibility. RDA and Cartographic Resources offers a vital summary and overview of how to catalogue cartographic resources using the new standard. Written by three expert cataloguers, this new book is rich with examples and sample records to illustrate each important aspect of the topic, including: • an analysis of what will remain familiar from AACR2, and what is new and different in RDA • guidance for creating authorized geographic subject headings using Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Resources (FRBR) and Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD) • a detailed examination of geographic subject headings and subdivisions. Readership: Designed for both practising map cataloguers and cataloguers new to cartographic resources, RDA and Cartographic Resources is a one-stop resource for all cataloguers of cartographic materials, especially those looking to understand the differences between cataloguing using AACR2 and cataloguing using RDA.
