I've concluded that we need a new model of what a cataloging course does and we have to develop it now. We can't fit another "topic" into the syllabus and one session's lecture on RDA wouldn't stick in a student's brain anyway. To say that you're going to do a course that teaches FRBR or RDA doesn't fully deal with the subject/outsourcing/metadata/online catalog issues that have radically altered the rest of today's cataloging landscape.
