Implementation




The national libraries: British Library, Library & Archives
Canada, Library of Congress, National Library of Australia are
committed to implementation.

Implementation in 2009

The national libraries are consulting with stakeholders:
bibliographic agencies, suppliers, system vendors and
partners to make implementation as painless as possible.

We want to hear from you…




                                                                 13
Implementation – thinking ahead




Become familiar with FRBR and RDA before 2009

Look at RDA online

Keep up to date with developments

Consider budgetary impacts of licensing RDA

Consider impact on productivity during the implementation
and bedding in period
 Do you need to adjust targets?
Is your system vendor aware of RDA?
Are there internal impacts on your catalogue?
