The creation and application of authorized access points is an important part of Resource Description and Access (RDA). This workshop will explore a variety of topics related to RDA authority work, such as how to find and interpret RDA/MARC authority records, how to establish personal name authorized access points, and how to ensure that your MARC bibliographic records include the appropriate authorized access points for user-friendly access. Plenty of examples and hands-on exercises will be provided. It is recommended that participants bring or share a laptop that can connect to wifi.
