I'm hoping (like a cataloguing superhero) some cataloguers experienced in 
RDA from the US (as the main place I know who have been actively training 
and cataloguing with RDA) will appear to helpfully tell us how they've

If we're all struggling after only looking at these 10 titles, I'm 
definitely sharing that unease about the prospect of training all my 
colleagues about it.
