Good morning everyone,

Here in Cambridge, we implemented RDA on 31st March last year (so a year 
ago were in the midst of a huge training programme).

We have still to develop training and policy documentation for non-book 
formats though, which is taking place between now and August, with our 
maps and music cataloguers already quite far along the road with 
developments.

We still accept AACR2 copy, along similar lines to Helen Williams at LSE 
- we take RDA as first choice, then full AACR2 and would only convert 
AACR2 to RDA if the record needed substantial editing.

We also do NACO authority work which has all been in RDA since March 
2013.

As many of you may already know, our training materials are available 
online, in case they may be of use to anyone:

And for those with access to the RDA Toolkit, our monograph workflow is 
available there as a global workflow and we are developing our serials 
workflow too. We based our workflows and training very much on the work 
of the British Library, so we are very grateful to them for all their 
work.
