From the Illinois Library Assocation’s 2012 Annual Conference, Peoria, October 9:

A wealth of useful resources here, including DDC tools, converters and calculators, RDA resources, many more.

I have saved my presentation as both PPT so you can see the notes, and PDF in case you have trouble viewing the PPT.

Both Erica and I added a little extra information based on the discussion at our presentations.

Some time ago we posted a link to LC’s training examples for RDA, first established around the time of the test period. There is a more updated list here, under the title “RDA Record Examples”, with documents focused on different types of materials. (You may notice, among other things, that the tagging reflects the use of repeatable field 264, rather than 260, for publication and copyright data.)
