I thank Tom Meehan for posting his wonderful mockup (not prototype), which is only as illustration of the *kind* of thing that could (i.e., should) be done. I didn't take it as a proposal of exactly the elements that would be contained in a production environment. This is a great illustration of how we should be able to have data input in a non-MARC, non-HTML web form, and get output in whatever format is needed (MARC, XML, etc.). I would assume that the flavor of such a tool many catalogers will choose to employ will have separate boxes for all the specific RDA elements. Kevin M.
