Changing for International Formats and Codes (MARC 21, AACR2)


During its meeting on 6 December 2001, the standardisation committee pronounced itself in favour of a change from the German code RAK and the format MAB to the Anglo-American standards AACR and MARC. Due to the considerable structural and financial consequences, the committee has, however, asked the German National Library to draw up a study examining general conditions, consequences and time requirements prior to a final decision.

The aim of the project was a study that represented a reliable basis for future political decisions.
