Dear cataloging colleagues,

As chair of the PCC Policy Committee, I would like to share with you an announcement which was sent yesterday to the PCC members. You may wish to consider this policy change in your local RDA transition plans.


p.s. My apologies in advance for any duplicate messages.

Dear PCC colleagues,

At the November meeting of the PCC Policy Committee (PoCo), we discussed the results of the recent survey of BIBCO and CONSER libraries.Taking this input into consideration, PoCo decided that December 31, 2014 will be the last date for original PCC AACR2 cataloging.Starting January 1, 2015, all new BIBCO and CONSER contributions must follow RDA BIBCO and CONSER Standard Record guidelines.Records created by PCC BIBCO and CONSER members that are not fully RDA compliant, may not be coded PCC.

BIBCO and CONSER members should see the announcements on their email lists for more details.

For NACO and SACO members this is not a policy change.However, your libraries may take this date under consideration in your local RDA transition plans.
