The Lang-athon: a multilingual Jane-athon

Inspired by the Jane-athons presented by the RDA Development Team and ALA Publishing in 2015 and earlier this year, TBLC, in cooperation with Gordon Dunsire (Chair of the RSC) and TMQ (creators of RIMMF), invite you to participate in an early look at the possible future of multilingual, multicultural shared cataloging.

This event will take place on Thursday, June 23, 2016, before ALA Annual in Orlando. It will be a day-long event, running from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. Lunch will be provided.

The event has two simple goals:

  • to explore creating RDA data without the filter of the MARC format, using the RIMMF software (RDA in Many Metadata Formats)
  • to show how RDA, the RDA Registry, and RIMMF support multilingual and multicultural descriptive environments

Date: June 23, 2016

Time: 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Location: Rosen College of Hospitality Management - Disney Dining Room

Fee: $185
