of WORDS, MAKING UP Welcome to the FRamily Why Should I Care
About RDA? Jessamine County Public Library Librarians are often riveting conversationalists because of their overuse of acronyms and library jargon. Another powerful, yet often overlooked, professional conversation tool is that of the made-up word. The trick is to take a normal word and add a suffix or two to it.

An example: find + able + ity = findability.

Can you find this word in a dictionary? No, it has no findability.

(Non-FRBRized) Limitations on RDA
Developed in the 1960's, MARC has been tweaked to accomdated RDA but is really meant for AACR2
As long the ILS remains grounded in flat MARC records, library data will be kept in their stand-alone silos The forty-five-year-old MARC
format, currently at version
MARC21, is an obvious barrier
to the provision of library
services in a web-based environment.

There is a growing consensus that
the time has come for libraries to
move to a new format. ~Karen Coyle
MARC21 as Data: A Start
Code4Lib Journal
Issue 14, 2011-07-25 Remind me why again? Increased Findability To be not only on the Web, but of the Web (Karen Coyle) "RDA provides a bridge from
our current environment to
new data structures, but some
of the benefits are not
going to be realized in our
current systems."

Libraries Library Catalogs Collection of MARC records (Up until now) Built on AACR2, 1978 revision (Anglo-American Cataloging Rules) Text records intended for people to read Online catalog still resembles the catalog card Then Now Links! More Works Relationships The Library of Congress has launched a review of the bibliographic framework to better accommodate future needs. A major focus of the initiative will be to determine a transition path for the MARC 21 exchange format in order to reap the benefits of newer technology while preserving a robust data exchange that has supported resource sharing and cataloging cost savings in recent decades.
