First Batch RDA Related Authority Records Distributed

August 1, 2012

Alert:  Notification Customers, Weekly Distribution has begun.

Distribution of Phase I Resource Description and Access Authority Records

SUBJECT: First batch of RDA authority records arrived from LC

This is an important message intended for everyone involved with loading LC authority records from MARCIVE Authorities Notification Service into a library automation system. Weekly Notification starts this week!

With reference to our messages of June 5 and July 17, MARCIVE has now received the first batch of RDA related authority records from LC and will begin sending them to all Notification clients this week. If all goes as planned, you should receive the usual email message(s) sometime August 1 or 2.

This first batch is smaller than the anticipated full weekly rate of RDA record production so we expect the size of your Notification files this week will be roughly similar to the monthly files you normally receive. We expect the files to be larger beginning next week and continuing for several weeks thereafter.

We continue to appreciate everyone’s cooperation and we will keep you informed as things develop.
