RDA or Resource Description and Access has replaced Anglo American Cataloging Rules as the international standard in cataloging/describing library resources. The Library of Congress and many national bibliographic agencies, national libraries, and university/academic libraries abroad have scheduled for full implementation of RDA in their respective libraries in 2013. While RDA has steered so much discussion and debate among librarians and information workers abroad, the library community in the Philippines seems not to have been affected by it at all. Perhaps, some librarians and information workers have heard about it but they are not so keen to pursue it because it has not been implemented yet.
IMSI considers this an opportune time for a seminar-workshop to steer Filipino librarians to take a look at this new development in organizing resources in the digital world. This seminar workshop, therefore, offers something that Filipino librarians can talk and think about so that when RDA is finally implemented they are ready for it.
It is therefore IMSI's great pleasure to invite you to this Seminar-Workshop on Resource Description and Access to be held on April 24-27, 2013 at Bicol University Auditorium, Legazpi City.
Seminar fee of Php 4,000.00 will be charged to cover accommodation (excluding breakfast and dinner), snacks and lunches, kit, hand-outs, and certificate of participation for live-in participants. Php 3,500 will be charged to live-out participants for snacks, lunches, kits, hand-outs and certificate of participation.
We enjoin participants to bring their laptops, if available. This will be used for the workshop.
Attached please find our brochure-invitation to the seminar-workshop. A
memorandum from the Commission on Higher Education will be released shortly.
Thank you and we look forward to be with you at the seminar-workshop.
Very truly yours,
