MARCIVE, Inc., Releases RDA Conversion Service

San Antonio, Texas, January 23, 2013—Resource Description and Access (RDA) sounds like a lot of work to a lot of librarians. However, MARCIVE, Inc., now has an easy and economical way to make your database conform to RDA practices, the RDA Conversion Service (RDACS).

Hundreds of changes will be made to improve both the cataloging description and the name, title, and subject headings. RDACS is designed to be a free component of MARCIVE’s already economical authorities processing services, both backfile and ongoing.
