The Pan-Canadian Working Group on Cataloguing with RDA is pleased to announce the launch of our RDA training program.


Cataloguers from British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Qu├ębec have collaboratively designed a set of training modules to orient cataloguers to the new content standard. The peer-reviewed materials include content created by the Library of Congress and the JSC, adapted for the Canadian context. The modules are designed to be delivered face-to-face in workshops and can be used for self-study.
