SUNCAT is sending out a survey to Contributing Libraries on Monday, 4thFebruary, to discuss what the libraries are doing with regards to the adoption of RDA (Resource Description Access), the new cataloguing rules that are due to replace AACR2 (Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd edition).  The results will help with integrating RDA into SUNCAT, for example, in adding new MARC21 codes for display, new indexing routines, etc. The analysis of the answers will also form the basis of a paper that has been accepted for publication in Alexandria: the journal of national & international library and information issues (0955-7490), in a special RDA-themed issue.

We would be very grateful if our Contributing Libraries completed this survey. We are happy to receive more than one questionnaire from any given Contributing Library, as there may be different answers from different departments, etc. The survey will be open for 3 weeks.
