On March 17, 2010, my post about and OCLC included the following statement:

“OCLC and Cassidy Cataloguing Services, Inc. may finally reach a compromise. OCLC may grant permission to allow a WorldCat Local institution that has purchased Cassidy MARC record sets to view the records as part of its WorldCat Local subscription.”

OCLC WorldCat – the union database of bibliographic and authority records contributed by member libraries, the Library of Congress, the National Library of Medicine, the National Agriculture Library, the U.S. Government Printing Office and several other national libraries from around the globe. Records are accessible to all OCLC members.

Here is the companion article to “In Appreciation of Library Catalogers and Cataloging Standards” posted by me 7/23/09. At the end of that article I wrote that I had asked Joni Cassidy to consider writing an article for this blog that woud explore RDA in greater depth. Joni agreed, I am proud to present to you the article below prepared by Joni and two senior members of her staff at Cassidy Cataloging Services.

AACR Move Over! Here Comes RDA!

From Cassidy Cataloguing Inc.

“We are pleased to announce that… Cassidy Cataloguing [is offering] MARC21 records for the World Trials Library. The MARC21 records for this collection will be developed and managed wholly by Cassidy Cataloguing, who is offering the records at a one-time subscription price. A subscription will include MARC21 records for up to 1,900 titles comprising Phase I of the World Trials Library. It will also include monthly updates that will coincide with new content released in Phase I of this library in HeinOnline. On average, we have been adding approximately 100 titles per month to the World Trials Collection and will continue to do so until the digitization of the Cornell Law collection is completed. After the digitization of Phase I is complete, we plan to further develop this library by adding additional historically significant trial collections, providing even greater access to trials that have been locked away for hundreds of years!”
