As the transition to RDA changes the international cataloguing landscape, readers need practical guidance to operate successfully in a world of hybrid catalogues, where records created under different standards co-exist. This highly practical guide draws out the flexibility offered by RDA and the scope for cataloguer judgement in balancing flexibility with consistency of entry. Welsh leads the reader through the decision-making process, showing how the skills and judgements familiar from AACR2 can be applied to RDA. This book slices into RDA to answer questions including: What are the increased decision-making powers of the catalogue based on RDA?What support is available in making decisions?How can libraries integrate new RDA records within their catalogues and cataloguing practices?What steps can cataloguers take to increase their decision-making skills and confidence, and how can employers support their staff in this? Readership: Cataloguers, all library staff, information professionals, support staff and LIS students.
