RDA implementation at Casalini


Abstract


Casalini Libri started cataloguing in the 1960s to ensure that bibliographic information for new scholarly publications in our areas of expertise (works from Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Malta and Greece) were available to academic libraries worldwide, and we now have a staff of 25 cataloguers. As a member of the Program of Cooperative Cataloguing, Casalini started with day 1 of RDA, April 1, 2013, producing authority records in the format as well as updating existing records. Now, all the bibliographic records we provide are in RDA, approximately 500 books every week, and some of our staff have even worked on the Italian translation of RDA. Casalini Libri is also a contributor to NACO and SACO, submitting subject headings (in RDA) and call numbers, to the revision of the Policy and Standards Division of the Library of Congress.
