Clients of our 360 MARC Updates service will begin receiving modified RDA format records. RDA records are being modified to appear as close to AACR2 records as possible to ensure a seamless experience for your library’s users. In March 2013 all new Library of Congress records will be in RDA record format. With this change to our system, new reports will deliver better records with better metadata, while also delivering more full Library of Congress records and a decline in the number of brief records.
