RDA Is Here: Full Scale Implementation of RDA at UH System Libraries
MetadataShow full item record
The national libraries of United States started their implementation of RDA on March 31, 2013. University of Houston Libraries decided to take action to ensure a simultaneous implementation of the new resource description standard. Besides incorporating new RDA records into our system, UH Libraries planned to achieve a major goal of retrospectively converting it's existing AACR bibliographic records into RDA records. UH Libraries and three other UH Campus Libraries share the same ILS system. They established a RDA Implementation Task Force with representatives from each of the campus libraries. This presentation will cover their RDA implementation process in systems configuration, vendor collaboration, local policy creation, training, and communication. The presentation will also share the short-term and long-term benefits, challenges, and lessons learned from their RDA implementation.
