Internationalisation

After reviewing the results of the study "Changing to International Standards (MARC 21, AACR2)" which was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Committee for Library Standards agreed on the internationalisation of the German standards in December 2004.

The resolutions included the changeover to MARC 21 as the unique exchange format for Germany and Austria, the active involvement in the development of international cataloguing principles and of the new standard Resource Description and Access (RDA).
