At the Wellcome Library all of our existing records (555,000) were sent away in batches to Backstage Library Works for automatic RDA enrichment - not perfect but at least now recognisable as RDA.



With all the changes in the library metadata at the moment and batchloading electronic records, etc, we have, in many ways, had to give up on having a 'perfect' consistent catalogue for everything. However, we still value high quality cataloguing input on specialist materials in particular and work hard to main the best consistency we can in the circumstances.

It has been interesting to read of some people using RDA already for rare books. The situation I am in is that the catalogue I am working on creating has been about 10 years in the making and has a good consistency of abiding by DCRM rules. Although it would be easier to adjust authority entries such as changing 'fl.' to 'active' etc., it would be much harder to justify modifying all of the free text entries in the 27,000 records to date. My primary purpose is to press on with new cataloguing, not going back over old ground. Have people reached different conclusions?
