Thanks Michele for bringing this up. We will be implementing RDA in our 
regular cataloging workflows within the next two months, and although I 
do the archival collection cataloging, I really dont consider myself a 
cataloger and thus would appreciate any help from any members of this 
list who have begun using RDA to catalog archival collections at the 
collection level.
