Thanks Celine
We are doing the same as you, and our discovery layer is taking the format information from Leader/006/007 as well. 

I'm interested in how people are managing the systems change, which has been mentioned by a few people.  Rosemary, you said that your set up was done in terms of your load tables and OPAC display.  Has that all been successful and are the RDA records you have from your ebooks suppliers displaying as you'd hope?  

Which LMS are you using Fiona - do you have any plans to set up your LMS to accept RDA fields?

We are a Voyager library, and RDA on what we call our 'Classic catalogue' (it's Web Voyage) is working fine, but our discovery layer, VuFind, is posing a few more challenges.   We've finally got the 264 working (though some copyright symbols are looking a bit peculiar!), and are still working on 1xx/7xx $e fields. 

Has anyone else been having any systems challenges?

That's interesting Kate, as we are a Voyager library but have not been adding GMD to RDA records. This doesn't seem to affect our searching, frontline staff have been quite happy and there has been no impact on users as far as we can tell. We use the Voyager OPAC (which we call our Newton catalogue) but do also have a discovery layer (Aquabrowser) which many users prefer to use and which does not use GMD at all but rather takes information about format from the Leader/006/007, etc.
