RDA in Practice

Enrichment vs. Original Cataloging, a Side-by-Side Comparison

The Library of Congress made the switch to working in RDA on March 31, 2013. Since then, we've seen our clients opt to enrich tens of millions of their AACR2 records with RDA elements. But what does that really look like in practice?

We'd like to show you.

On September 10, 2014, Backstage's Nate Cothran and Nicole Arbuckle kicked off our RDA in Practice series with a short webinar walkthrough, comparing records we've enriched for RDA against records we've cataloged to RDA standards with the item in hand.


We're as deep into the new cataloging rules as anybody, but RDA is still new territory for libraries and service providers.
We want to be here with customizable solutions that fit your needs.

What issues are you facing as RDA comes online at your library? What do you plan to do? Or not do?
What do you wish you could do?

What are you hearing from your ILS vendor? What do you want to see from your service providers?
