GPO moves towards RDA adoption

The USGPO has created a Resource Description and Access implementation team to ensure a smooth transition from AACR2 to RDA.  GPO cataloging staff are continuing their training efforts, and are now working on sample record creation, the identification of local practices, and formal Program for Cooperative Cataloging review.  Full implementation is expected in April 2013.  The timeline is now available on the RDA project page
