... still remains unproven, or the question of how much implementing FRBR/RDA will ultimately cost. The costs are already beyond many libraries.
Not just the cost of implementing but even the costs of just reading the rules. Therefore, we are heading into a two-class library environment. This will be further diversified when it comes to whether or not a library can or wants to or is allowed to buy a systems upgrade to support FRBR and/or BIBFRAME and/or to have their local data upgraded to take advantage of new options, and so on. Patrons should love it when they are no longer all of them so boringly alike ...
