The RLG Partners working group that gathered and analyzed evidence over the past two years about MARC tag usage to inform library metadata practices completed its work in March 2010 with the publication of the 72-page Implications of MARC Tag Usage on Library Metadata Practices report (http://www.oclc.org/research/publications/library/2010/2010-06.pdf). Among the working group's conclusions: MARC data cannot continue to exist in its own discrete environment. It will need to be leveraged and used in other domains to reach users in their own networked environments. RLG is presenting the Webcast on June 10 as part of its annual Partnership Meeting. The Webcast will feature a discussion of the next steps we need to take to transition towards a post-MARC future.
