After years of buzz, the Library of Congress implemented the new cataloging standard RDA (Resource Description and Access) on March 31, 2013. What is RDA and why should I care? RDA is part of the ongoing transformation of library data with an objective of responsiveness to user needs. Susan Wynne will discuss the major differences between AACR2 practices and RDA, focusing on how RDA affects user displays and navigation in local catalogs, WorldCat, and elsewhere.

Susan Wynne has been the Cataloging & Metadata Librarian at Georgia State University since February 2012. She previously held positions at the University of Wyoming and Columbus State University. Susan has published and/or presented on oral histories, RDA, and the effects of next-generation catalogs on cataloging functions and catalogers.
