Finally got around to reading (I’ve had it open in a browser tab for weeks) Kelley’s presentation on “Will RDA Kill MARC?”, which from my point of view isn’t really about its title exactly, so much as it is a meditation on the problems with existing library metadata control in the contemporary machine environment, as well as the factors that constrain us from moving forward.
It’s great! Highly recommended! Especially to catalogers, I think it may speak in a way that connects with catalogers, being written by a cataloger and all, with some real world examples.
(It’s sort of a slide presentation, but with extensive well-written notes that form a continuous narrative; you can read it like an illustrated essay, unlike most slideshows. Normally I hate trying to read slideshows, but this one is fine.)
