Coffee Talk: What's New and Different with OLAC Cataloging Best Practices

Day: Tuesday, October 17, 1-2pm Eastern Time

Registration: October 3, 2023 - October 16, 2023

The OLAC Best Practices for Cataloging DVD-Video and Blu-ray Discs, Objects, Streaming Media, and Video Games Using the Original RDA Toolkit and MARC and Full MARC Examples to Accompany OLAC Best Practices were published in April 2023.  Marcia Barrett & Josh Hutchinson, co-chairs of the OLAC Unified Best Practices Task Force, will present the scope of the new cataloging guide, focusing on content that is new or different from previous “single-format” guides.


This is not a cataloging workshop and will not include Q&A about specific cataloging situations.
