In this manual, expert cataloguer Ed Jones shows you how to catalogue serials using the new cataloguing standard, RDA: Resource Description and Access.
Serials and continuing resources present a variety of unique challenges in bibliographic management, from special issues and unnumbered supplements to recording the changes that a long-running periodical can experience over time. Easing cataloguers through the RDA: Resource Description and Access transition by showing the continuity with past practice, serials cataloguing expert Jones frames the practice within the structure of the FRBR and FRAD conceptual models on which RDA is based.
With serials' special considerations in mind, this essential guide explains the familiarities and differences between AACR2 and RDA and demonstrates how serials cataloguers' work fits in the cooperative context of OCLC, CONSER and NACO. Jones looks in detail at the process of cataloguing serials and ongoing integrating resources using RDA, from attributes and relationships between works to identifying related entities. Finally, looking at the possibilities offered by Linked Data, he presents examples of how RDA records can ultimately engage with the Semantic Web.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ed Jones has produced an excellent manual both in terms of the area it covers, the quality of the index, the level of detail provided and the way the book is written with the personality of the writer present in both his text and examples. This book will provide a secure grounding for the cataloguer moving into this area of work (or a student of cataloguing) or a bench book for a time-served serials cataloguer." -- Library and Information Research
"The book is usefully organized, and written in an approachably conversational style...Working cataloguers will be able to use this manual for day-to-day practice and will find it of lasting value as a reference manual for unusual or difficult cases. It will be found useful in libraries large and small and can serve as a reassuring introduction to the cataloguing of serial publications. Deft deployment of wry humour makes the book pleasantly readable." -- Collection Building
"...highly recommended for any situation - technical service departments or library students - where serials need to be catalogued using RDA protocols." -- Australian Library Journal
"...the book succeeds in its aim of offering practical cataloguing guidance while keeping the broader issues in view." -- Technicalities
