Cataloging Course for printed materials
In the context of the training program of the Arabic Union Catalog this year, a training course will be held, entitled "Cataloging the printed materials according to RDA rules and MARC 21 format", Safir Hotel Cairo, July 25-27, 2017. The training course will be provided free of charge for the AUC active members.
This training course is considered one of the leading ones that the AUC seeks to provide to its members more than once, through its training program, within the AUC plan for helping its members to convert to using the new rules applied in major western libraries several years ago. Whereas this training course explains how to use RDA rules in cataloging the publications, with paying a special attention to books, journals, and theses since they are the most distributed formats of the information resources. This represents a big step in the way of converting the Arabic library to use RDA rules.
