3. Discussion item: Relationship of RBMS PS to LC-PCC PS and BIBCO Standard Record (BSR) and CONSER Standard Record (CSR)
• The current drafts of the RBMS PS do not assume application of LC-PCC PS. When the same outcome as the LC-PCC PS is desired, the RBMS PS either provide similar instruction or reference the LC-PCC PS.
• The current BSR include rare materials cataloging provisions that serve as a cheat sheet for creating hybrid DCRM/RDA records. Francis and Michelle started discussion with PCC about whether to maintain rare material cataloging provisions within the BSR and CSR proper once the RBMS PS are complete. At this point, the PCC Standing Committee on Standards would like to keep options open and not make any final decisions until seeing the completed RBMS PS.
