I don't think it can be done incrementally. 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.
