- DescriptionMaking the Move to RDA: A Self-Study Primer for Catalogers is aimed at MARC catalogers who currently create AACR2 records and need to transition to the new Resource Description and Access (RDA) environment.

It will then explain RDA's theoretical underpinnings-collectively kwn as the FRBR Family of Models.
