Submit Your Conference Program Proposal

Libraries of all types foster diversity, engage community, and champion social justice. The 2017 ILA Conference, Rise Up!, is a chance for us to come together and share our ideas to better our communities, our institutions, and ourselves. How are you making a difference? What are you doing to improve your library and uplift your patrons? Tell us about it. Illinois libraries of all sizes and types make big impacts on their unique communities. Our conference should represent diversity throughout our state and we especially encourage submissions from typically underrepresented perspectives.

Resource Description and Access (RDA) is the new cataloging standard that has replaced the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd edition (AACR2). This workshop for new catalogers and para-professionals will focus on what RDA records look like in the catalog and the key ways they differ from AACR2 records.  Since the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) is the underlying conceptual model of RDA, we will explore the FRBR entities and why FRBR is an important part of understanding the evolution of the library catalog.  We will also cover how to encode RDA using the Machine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) standard.

Instructor: Karen Snow, Associate Professor and Ph.D. program director in the Graduate School of Library & Information Science at Dominican University.

Please note that there is a registration fee which includes lunch: Members $30.00; Non-members $40.00. Cancellations with refunds are possible up to a week before the program.
