Converting Your E-Resource Records to RDA

Richard Guajardo, Jamie Diana Carlstone

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The presenter describes the process of successfully implementing a full-scale Resource Description and Access (RDA) conversion and authority control project in the midst of migrating to a new integrated library system at the University of Houston Libraries. This presentation focuses on the impact on electronic resources, although the project was a full-scale conversion. The project allowed the library to create more granularity with the material type codes, which had an impact on both the Online Public Access Catalog and the discovery layer. The goal for the project, while time consuming, resulted in the conversion of RDA records to be done in a large batch project rather than record by record over the course of several years.
