Subject: [PCCLIST] Report of the PCC Task Group on Hybrid Bibliographic
Members of the PCC community,
The second of the three reports of the RDA-related task groups formed last June, from the PCC Task Group on Hybrid Bibliographic Records, has now been posted and linked from http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/RDA-Hybrid-bib-TG.html .
The report offers general guidelines for working with RDA and AACR2 records during the transition period from AACR2 to RDA. The focus of the task group when discussing editing of records was to find ways to improve user access. Editing in a record will generally be done following the rules currently governing the description and will not change the record's bibliographic identity/integrity. The report addresses editing done by individual catalogers and recommends that batch/machine editing of existing records not occur prior to RDA implementation.
A set of six guides is provided, for PCC work at the network level on RDA and AACR2 records for monographic, serial, and integrating resources. Use of the guides will give us experience on which to base guidelines for the post-implementation period.
The PCC Policy Committee accepts the task group's report, and we now want to get community comment in order to learn of any needed adjustments to the guides. Please share your thoughts over PCCLIST (or write to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> ) by October 21. An implementation date will be announced in the fall.
