MARC/RDA Working Group: Final Report

  • 1.  MARC/RDA Working Group: Final Report

    Posted Dec 07, 2022 10:53 AM

    Apologies for cross-posting. Posted on behalf of the MARC/RDA Working Group

    Dear Colleagues,

    The MARC/RDA Working Group is pleased to announce the release of its final report

    This report provides a background to the group's establishment, its charge, membership, schedule of work and guiding principles.
    It goes on to summarize those changes to MARC 21 which were recommended by the MRWG and agreed by the MARC Advisory Committee in support of the RDA Toolkit following completion of the RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign (3R) Project. It also details those changes to RDA which the MRWG considered, but chose not to pursue from the perspective of MARC 21 development. In conclusion, the report analyses the limitations associated with implementing 3R in a MARC 21 context as well as the possible scope for further changes in future.

    Regards,

    Thurstan
