Subject: [CatSIG] TQM expressions of interest


CATSIG is considering another round of TMQ (The Marc of Quality) cataloguing
workshops in the second half of 2014.  We are looking for expressions of
interesting in the following TQM workshops:


MARC21 in your library (1 day):

This course is a beginner's introduction to MARC21 and how it is meant to
work in a library automation system. It explains what the MARC standards are
and how those standards tie in with our current cataloguing rules (AACR) to
help cataloguers create data that will function effectively in a library

See the TMQ website http://www.marcofquality.com/trn/trnindex.html for more


Rudimentary RDA (1 day):

In the course of the workshop, we intend to answer the following questions:

.         How RDA is intended to help the users of our OPACs

.         What are FRBR, WEMI, FISO, and FRAD

.         What is really different about RDA

.         What is the RDA Toolkit

.         What is RIMMF

.         How the Toolkit and RDA-based cataloguing software (such as RIMMF)
will make it simpler for us to describe and provide access to resources

.         What we should do with RDAMARC records that we copy, to make those
records work properly in our OPACs

See the TMQ website http://www.marcofquality.com/trn/rda.html for more


RDA/MARC for Copy Cats (2 days):

Copy cataloguing is becoming somewhat more complicated, as various important
creators of MARC records gradually switch from following AACR rules to
following RDA instructions for the records they make. RDA/MARC records
certainly look different than AACR/MARC records, and so do the Hybrid
AACR/MARC records that are also showing up for you to copy. But the good
news is that there are some straightforward patterns in the RDA instructions
that will help clarify the changes that RDA brings to our copy cataloguing

See the TMQ website http://www.marcofquality.com/trn/rda.html for more


RDA Minus MARC (2 days):

Catalogers who already understand how RDA differs from AACR2 may still
struggle with the more conceptual aspects of RDA, such as making
relationships among the FRBR/FRAD entities. This advanced RDA workshop
provides an opportunity to work hands-on with RDA in a non-MARC environment,
using RIMMF, a freely available visualization and training tool.  Deborah
Fritz will explain RIMMF and lead attendees through a series of examples to
create attribute and relationship data for works, expressions,
manifestations, items, persons and corporate bodies; with the emphasis on
understanding how RDA thinking is different from AACR2 and MARC.
