Changing for International Formats and Codes (MARC 21, AACR2)
Object of the study
The main focus of the project "Changing for International Formats and Codes (MARC 21, AACR2)" was not to examine the quality of international codes and formats, but to look at conditions for and consequences of a migration from RAK and MAB to AACR and MARC. The organisational, technical, and microeconomic perspective of the library were considered.
The result of the study was open-ended. The objective was delivery of a reliable basis for future political decisions.
The study examined different models and scenarios of the migration. Separate calculations and temporal perspectives were considered. The study also reported on the consequences of remaining with RAK and MAB.
