We have sworn off both Dublin Core and ONIX.  MARC records so produced
are really poor.  But the AACR2 compatible records we produce from
RDA, and the UKMARC records produce from MARC21, are both quite good,
due to the high quality and consistency of the source records.

Both RDA and Bibframe over estimate the ability of many libraries to
afford the system changes they require.  Libraries which must have
UKMARC are growing fewer.
