9:30-10:50 Keynote Address: Taming the Beast: Thoughts on RDA Implementation
Presenter: Mark Ehlert, Minitex
From AACR3 to RDA to LC implementation, the journey to develop and publish a new cataloging standard has been long, arduous, and frustrating. But getting it out the door is only the first step--it's now up to individual institutions and consortia to take the written word and apply it to day-to-day work. This keynote will address the broader strokes of RDA implementation: training, documentation, workflows, and application of the cataloging rules.
RDA: Resource Description and Access is the new international cataloging standard that the U.S. National Libraries and Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) member libraries will implement on April Fool’s Eve (March 31, 2013). This session will cover the RDA Core elements and e-resource specific elements for attributes used to describe e-books and electronic integrating resources using the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data. Special attention is given to PCC Provider Neutral guidelines.
2) Textbooks, ETextbooks, and Open Education Resources

Presenters: Tina Gross, St. Cloud State University and Jessica Schomberg, Minnesota State University, Mankato
Now that "Day One" for implementation of RDA Authorities has come and gone, what changes have already taken place in MnPALS and what is still to come? This session will give an overview of RDA changes to authority work and the process by which the national authorities database has been converted from AACR2 to RDA, and discuss the results of loading RDA authority records updated in "Phase 2" into Aleph.
2) Copyright Education at Your Campus
