Although scores and sound recordings are the two most common formats for musical materials, catalogers also have to deal with audiovisual materials such as DVD and Blu-ray discs and streaming and other online media with musical content. In this workshop, Keith Knop and Jay Weitz will teach some of the basics of cataloging both tangible and online video, paying special attention to RDA treatment of musical materials and corresponding MARC 21 practices. The workshop will touch upon such tools as the Online Audiovisual Catalogers (OLAC) documents Best Practices for Cataloging DVD-Video and Blu-ray Discs Using RDA and MARC21, Best Practices for Cataloging Streaming Media Using RDA and MARC21, and Video Language Coding: Best Practices, as well as the Music Library Association’s Best Practices for Music Cataloging Using RDA and MARC21.

Topics include:

• RDA instructions pertaining to videorecordings and their location in the Toolkit.
• Differences between videorecordings instructions in RDA and AACR2.
• Aspects of RDA and FRBR that affect access to videorecordings of opera, ballet, and other areas of performance.
• Recent genre and subject heading changes that affect music audiovisual recordings.
• Treatment of streaming media in RDA.
• Supplemental guidelines for cataloging musical resources using RDA and MARC 21, including best practices documents from the Music Library Association and the Online Audiovisual Catalogers.
• MARC fields and subfields that accommodate RDA data for videorecordings.
