Weekly Notification Resumes March 13

March 6, 2013

This is an important message intended for anyone involved with loading Library of Congress (LC) authority records from MARCIVE Authorities Notification Service into a library automation system.

Weekly Notification will begin March 13!

With reference to our related message of February 14 2013, LC has announced creation of Phase 2 RDA authority records has begun. Actual release of the records to the library community does not begin until next week so you can expect weekly Notification files to begin then (March 13 or 14) and continue until you have received all the Phase 2 records.

If these Phase 2 RDA records are released according to announced plans, we would expect the last resulting weekly Notification cycle to be completed around March 27-28. However, it seems likely that actual release of all records will not be complete until the first week(s) of April so you should allow for that possibility.

When we have more information we will send another message like this one to confirm the end of weekly Notification and the resumption of normal monthly cycles. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us.
