UH Librarian Conducts Workshop in Colombia

A University of Houston librarian recently traveled internationally to provide instruction on resource description and access (RDA) cataloging.

Heylicken “Hayley” Moreno, resource description coordinator in the department of Metadata and Digitization Services, developed and instructed a two-day workshop on RDA cataloging in Spanish for the conference “Present and Future of Cataloging Standards,” held in Bogotá and Cartagena, Colombia.

The conference provided participants with practical experience in cataloging with RDA, and presented new developments that are occurring in the US with BIBFRAME, a bibliographic model that uses linked data. Moreno’s workshop focused on the current practices that have been put in place with RDA, and guided catalogers in the application of these new changes with various formats including audiovisual and electronic resources.

Four universities helped sponsored this event: Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano, Universidad de Cartagena, Universidad Tecnológica de Bolívar, and Fundación Universitaria Tecnológico Comfenalco with the support of Referencistas S.A.S.
