Abstract

This study aimed to determine the level of the transcribing knowledge and skills of the academic librarians in Nueva Vizcaya. This study utilized quantitative research design using a test item method. The findings revealed that the academic librarians’ level of transcribing knowledge and skills in using RDA were found to be novice across the four domains namely: recording attributes of manifestations and items; recording attributes of works and expressions; recording attributes of person, family and corporate body; and recording relationships of persons, families and corporate bodies. It was also found that the young academic librarians who attained bachelor’s degree as their highest educational attainment were more knowledgeable and skilled in terms of recording attributes of manifestation and items and recording relationships of persons, families and corporate bodies when transcribing resources using RDA. The study concluded that the academic librarians exhibited very limited transcribing knowledge and skills in using RDA and that there is a dire need for intervention to enhance the academic librarians’ knowledge and skills.
