Formación RDA para participantes de NACO

La Secretaría del Programa de Cooperación en Catalogación (PCC) coordinado por personal de la Library of Congress ha lanzado una serie de videos en español a través de la Web para apoyar la transición de los catalogadores a las nuevas instrucciones de catalogación con RDA (Recursos: Descripción y Acceso.)

“Formación RDA para Catalogadores NACO” disponible en el sitio Web “Catalogers Learning Workshop” de la Library of Congress consiste en una serie de módulos de capacitación, autodidácticos e interactivos, designados para los miembros del Programa Cooperativo de Autoridades de Nombre del PCC (NACO) que trabajan en Español. Dicha serie de módulos se encuentran también disponibles a través del canal de iTunesU de la Biblioteca.

Colegas bibliotecólogos miembros del PCC de México y Perú participaron en la producción de los videos al igual que personal de habla hispana de la Library of Congress. Los módulos, desarrollados por la Secretaría PCC, con la asistencia de miembros del PCC y el personal multimedia de la Biblioteca, incluyen videos, demostraciones, pruebas y ejercicios. Las videoconferencias “en tiempo real”, facilitadas por los catalogadores RDA PCC, y los materiales de capacitación en español, se presentará en conferencias a través de Latinoamérica a lo largo de la primavera y el verano de 2013.

RDA: ¿preparando los motores para la implementación en Latinoamérica?

Ya hace un mes que la Library of Congrescomenzó a utilizar las RDA: Resource Description and Access como estándar oficial de descripción bibliográfica para sus colecciones. Este fue el último paso de un proceso de cambio y adaptación que lleva adelante desde el lanzamiento de las versiones preliminares de las RDA en el 2011. Y también, es el primer paso de un proceso gradual en el que muchas instituciones alrededor de mundo migrarán hacia el nuevo estándar.

Decisión

¿Y nosotros?

Los bibliotecarios latinoamericanos nos encontramos en medio de una gran disyuntiva.

  • Las normas más utilizadas en nuestras bibliotecas, las Reglas de Catalogación Angloamericanas 2da edición, han dejado de actualizarse en el 2005 para dar lugar las RDA. Desde el 1 de abril de 2013, las RCAA2 solamente están disponibles a través deRDA Toolkit.
  • Por otro lado, el 28 de marzo de 2013 se publicó la versión en español de la ISBD Consolidada 2011, disponible en el sitio web de la IFLA gracias a la traducción de Elena Escolano Rodríguez.
  • Sin embargo, vemos a muchas de las instituciones líderes a nivel internacional en el campo de la descripción bibliográfica migrar, o estar preparándose para migrar, a RDA.

Y entonces, ¿qué hacemos?

Cada biblioteca deberá evaluar cuidadosamente varios factores antes de tomar una decisión. Aquí algunos puntos a tener en cuenta:

  • Esperar a que esté disponible en nuestro idioma: la versión en español aún no ha sido publicada lo cual limita nuestras posibilidades de entrenamiento e implementación generalizada. Una vez que esté disponible, las licencias en español serán comercializadas por Rojas Eberhard, a través de Infolink Colombia SAS, para Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, República Dominicana, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guinea Ecuatorial, Guatemala, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, España, Uruguay y Venezuela.
  • Evaluar los costos de suscripción y nuestro presupuesto: el texto de las RDA: Resource Description and Access en español estará disponible en versión electrónica a través de RDA Toolkit por medio de licencias por un año. Esto significa que, al igual que cualquier otro recurso continuo electrónico propietario, tendremos el texto completo siempre y cuando paguemos nuestra suscripción y la renovemos anualmente. En este enlacepodemos ver los precios de la versión en inglés, para darnos una idea, ya que aún no conocemos los de la versión en español.
  • Explorar la posibilidad de comprar la versión impresaen el caso de que estemos decididos a utilizar las RDA, o para hacer entrenamiento, pero no tengamos la seguridad de poder renovar anualmente la suscripción, podemos optar por la versión impresa. Esta nos permitirá tener el texto de la norma disponible ante cualquier problema de presupuesto. La desventaja esta en que el texto no se actualizará tan asiduamente y no aprovecharemos las funcionalidades de la versión en línea. Sin embargo, según ALA Publishing, luego de la edición impresa del 2011, una nueva versión impresa se publicará a mediados de 2013, y a partir del 2014 se publicarán actualizaciones anuales para su integración. Se espera una versión impresa en español publicada por Rojas Eberhard.
  • Estar atentos a las iniciativas/decisiones de nuestras bibliotecas nacionales: las bibliotecas nacionales latinoamericanas pueden ser un buen marco de referencia a la hora de decidir nuestras políticas de descripción bibliográfica. Es un momento oportuno para preguntar y discutir con instituciones líderes a nivel regional, nacional y local para tomar decisiones en forma integrada.

En el 2014 se publicará un número especial de la revista Cataloging and Classification Quarterlyestará dedicado a la adopción de RDA en diversos países, en bibliotecas ubicadas fuera de los Estados Unidos. Incluirá diversos aspectos como: procesos de implementación de las RDA, capacitación, costos y beneficios, traducciones, problemas identificados, etc. Si bien esta publicación quizás no esté disponible para todos porque no es de acceso abierto, se puede tomar como una buena idea para crear algún espacio de intercambio para compartir nuestras experiencias y reflexiones sobre el tema a nivel regional.

El IV Encuentro Nacional de Catalogadores, organizado por la Biblioteca Nacional de la República Argentina que se llevará a cabo el 23, 24 y 25 de octubre en Buenos Aires es uno de los ejemplo de este tipo de espacios que favorecen el intercambio y la vision compartida sobre políticas de descripción bibliográfica en forma local.

Este canal ofrece videos de webinars sobre diversas temáticas e incluye varios videos muy interesantes para profundizar nuestros conocimientos sobre RDA, ofrecidos por expertos en catalogación y disponibles en forma gratuita.

A continuación, algunos de ellos:

También en la página de la Library of Congress hay una sección dedicada a recursos de información sobre RDA y el Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) ofrece una página con enlaces y más recursos sobre el tema.

En la página web de RDA Toolkit hay una recopilación de materiales para entrenamiento en RDA ofrecidos por diversas instituciones de todo el mundo y se puede acceder a ejemplos de registros RDA en MARC21 tanto bibliográficos como de autoridad. También, en la página web del Formato MARC se ofrece un resumen de los cambios realizados en MARC21 para la aplicación de las RDA.

RDA Toolkit recomienda el siguiente blog post para prepararse para RDA: Getting Ready for RDA without Panicking y pone a disposición videos con explicaciones sobre cómo utilizar RDA Toolkit. Todavía es posible obtener un período de prueba gratuito para conocer la herramienta y existen períodos de prueba para grupos para utilizar luego de la realización de eventos de capacitación.

Por ultimo, RDA Toolkit ofrece un webinar gratuito “RDA Toolkit Essentials” como introducción y guía para el uso de la herramienta: opciones de suscripción, sesionamiento, navegación, crear flujos de trabajo y definir marcadores, etc. También se responderán preguntas de los asistentes. La próxima edición del webinar sera el martes 11 de junio de 2013, a las 9:30 om CDT (GMT -5) y se puede registrar aquí.

Como siempre, es mucho mejor estar informados antes de tomar cualquier decisión. Por eso,aprovechemos todos los recursos que tenemos disponibles para estar preparados y…¡pongamos manos a la obra!

Library of Congress May Begin Transitioning Away from MARC

**Reprinted from Library Journal**

By Michael Kelley May 26, 2011

The Library of Congress has announced that it is going to undertake a major reevaluation of bibliographic control in a move that could lead to a gradual transition away from the 40-year-old MARC 21 standard in which billions of metadata records are presently encoded.

“It’s a ten,” said Sally McCallum without hesitation when asked to rank the project’s scope and importance on a scale of one to ten. McCallum is chief of the Network Development and MARC Standards Office at LOC.

The goal of the Bibliographic Framework Transition Initiative is to determine “what is needed to transform our digital framework” in the light of technological changes and budgetary constraints, said Deanna B. Marcum, the library’s Associate Librarian for Library Services, who will lead the initiative. “It’s very important that we find a way to link library resources to the whole world of information resources not focusing exclusively on bibliographic information,” she said.

By rethinking MARC, which has supported resource sharing and cataloging cost savings for many years and is the predominant standard for the representation and communication of bibliographic and related information in machine-readable form, Marcum said that the LOC hopes to determine whether the standard can “evolve to do all the things we’d like it to do, or do we need to replace it” with something more compatible with the Internet world.

As the LOC concludes what to retain from current metadata encoding standards, the library community may eventually need to get comfortable with other data structures.

“We have a huge library infrastructure very much built up over the years around the MARC format, and this will cause some disruption of that and that costs something and it has to be done smartly and carefully,” said McCallum. “We can go on as we are but it’s not desirable,” she said.

Inspired by RDA
The hope is that a move toward new data structures will “enable bibliographic data to be used in very new technologies and technical configurations, such as the semantic web,” McCallum said.

“I think we need to go into some of these new data structures with more alacrity than we have,” McCallum said. “It would behoove the community to get comfortable with other data structures, like XML or RDF.”

There is also a desire in the library community to “reap the full benefits of new and emerging content standards,” as indicated by the comments that accompanied the testing of the new Resource Description and Access (RDA) standard, Marcum said.

RDA is a cataloguing code which covers all types of content and media (including digital resources) and was released about a year ago to replace the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd Edition Revised (AACR2). Its development was a recognition that libraries operate in a digital environment and have to deal with metadata creators who are not librarians. RDA integrates library cataloguing records with this new metadata, but the testing raised further issues that have spurred the new initiative.

“Many people made the comment that while the new code [RDA] will allow us to better link the disparate resources that are available, there are inherent difficulties in using MARC as the carrier for the records we create in this new code. It’s just time to get serious,” she said.

The Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control, formed in 2006, also helped drive the new agenda.

“They raised this issue. I give that group credit for raising this issue of whether it is time to reevaluate the MARC standard,” Marcum said. “And I think by focusing on that question it has increased the sensitivity of all of us to the barriers that exist in our current system to making information fully accessible,” Marcum said.

Change will come slowly
The LOC intends any changes to be gradual.

“MARC is going to be around for another ten years. It’s used too universally,” McCallum said. “There are too many services and products based in MARC, and its use will simply dwindle as people convert and as they can afford to convert,” she said.

“We want change with stability,” McCallum said. The LOC is mindful that libraries have to contain costs even as they are being asked to provide cataloging metadata for the exploding amount of digital material.

The project will also:

  • Foster maximum re-use of library metadata in the broader web search environment.
  • Explore the use of data models such as Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) in navigating relationships, whether those are actively encoded by librarians or made discernible by the semantic web.
  • Plan for bringing existing metadata into new bibliographic systems within the broader Library of Congress technical infrastructure.

Marcum said the initiative will be “fully collaborative,” and an initial discussion will take place in June at the annual conference of the American Library Association in New Orleans. A series of meetings with stakeholders are expected in 2012 and 2013.

What is RDA and how will it impact cataloging?

**Reposted from the ANSS Subject and Bibliographic Access Committee wiki**

ANSS Subject and Bibliographic Access Committee
Question/Answer on cataloging issues – November, 2010
Question: What is RDA and how will it impact cataloging?

Answer: What is RDA?
RDA stands for Resource Description and Access. It is the new cataloging standard, replacing AACR2. RDA is based on the FRBR (functional requirements for bibliographic records) and FRAD (functional requirements for authority data) concept models. FRBR and FRAD are models which are internationally recognized as viable and valuable ways to conceptually structure and retrieve information.

How long has RDA been available and are catalogers using it now?
RDA has been widely disseminated in various drafts for a few years. Most catalogers are familiar with some of the concepts in RDA, although few are expert at the new rules yet. This is partly because in the United States RDA was not universally accepted upon release in June of 2010. Instead the Library of Congress and 25 other libraries will test the new rules during a nine month period.
This test began this summer and will continue until April of 2011. At that time the Library of Congress will make a recommendation as to whether they feel it is worth it to adopt RDA or not. Until the Library of Congress commits to the new rules, most other U.S. libraries are continuing to catalog using AACR2 rules. However, there are 25 libraries assisting with the national test that are, of course, cataloging using RDA. As of early Nov. 2010, there were approximately 3000 RDA records in OCLC.

How will RDA impact my library?
RDA itself is available in electronic form. Since the rules are completely restructured to follow a FRBR concept, it can be difficult to locate the pertinent rules, even for experienced catalogers. Every cataloger will have to be trained in the new rules as will most acquisitions staff. Circulation and reference staff will also need to be aware of certain changes which will affect access. In short, you can expect your library to have to be involved in a level of training equivalent to purchasing a new ILS.

How does RDA differ from AACR2?
In many regards the rules have remained substantially the same, and an AACR2 record may not look that different than an RDA record. In some cases the rules have changed significantly. There is not space in this column to discuss every change between AACR2 and RDA. However, we will highlight a few of the changes here.

1.
AACR2 has a list of abbreviations that were used throughout the record. In RDA there are very, very few abbreviations used and most terms are spelled out. Examples:
AACR2: 300 |a ca. 200 p. : |b chiefly ill. (some col.) ; |c 32 cm.
Please visit the ANSS wiki for further information on new LCSH, Cataloging Q&A, our
newsletter, and Conference Handouts ‐ http://wikis.ala.org/acrl/index.php/ANSS Page 2
RDA: 300 |a approximately 200 pages : |b illustrations (some color) ; |c 32 cm.
500 |a Chiefly illustrations.

2.
AACR2 used Latin abbreviations which will also not be used in RDA. Examples:
AACR2: 260 |a [S.l. : |b s.n.], |c 1966.
RDA: 260 |a[Place of publication not identified] : |b [publisher not identified], |c 1966.

3.
There is an emphasis in RDA to type what you see and to make our notes more explicative to the general public. For example:
AACR2: 245 |a Micromagentic [sic] study of magnetoeleastic materials
RDA: 245 |a Micromagentic study of magnetoeleastic materials
246 |i Title should read: |a Micromagnetic study of magnetoeleastic materials

4.
In AACR2 a cataloger would list all the authors only if there were 3 or less. In RDA the cataloger has the option to list all the authors on the title page. For example:
AACR2: 245 |a Anthropology / |c Sean Markey … [et al.].
RDA: 245 |a Anthropology / |c Sean Markey, John T. Pierce, Kelly Vodden, Mark Roseland, and Vincent Pudden.
Or in RDA you can choose: 245 |a 245 |a Anthropology / |c Sean Markey [and four others].

5.
There will also be changes to headings. For example:
AACR2: Smith, John, ca. 1837-1896
RDA: Smith, John, approximately 1837-1896
AACR2: Smith, John, b. 1825
RDA: Smith, John, born 1825
AACR2: Brown, George, Captain
RDA: Brown, George (Soldier)
NOTE: In RDA the cataloger is allowed to qualify a name by a profession or occupation
AACR2: Comparative Canadian Literature Conference
RDA: Annual Comparative Canadian Literature Conference
AACR2: Bible. O.T. English. Gordon et al. 1927
RDA: Bible. Old Testament. English. Gordon and others. 1927
Examples were taken from Changes from AACR2 to RDA : a comparison of examples by Adam L. Schiff.
