SMART at Saratoga Springs:
SMART has put together an exciting series of programs that will explore makerspaces, badging, and other tech trends for the 2014 NYLA Annual Conference. We are also pleased to announce that John Myers will be joining us again to lead a full day CE session, “Lost in RDA? Let SMART Show You the Way!” Don’t be left out, be sure to register early for conference and for this CE. The daylong workshop will provide an overview of the conceptual and organizational differences between AACR2 and RDA with the bulk of the day spent in close review of RDA rules relevant to descriptive cataloging of ‘routine’ monographic print resources including hands-on cataloging practice in applying these rules.
