The Libraries Australia cataloguing system was successfully upgraded over the weekend and is now available for use via the Libraries Australia Cataloguing
Client and WebCat.
The upgrade includes system configuration changes to:
* Support for new MARC field 264 which will replace field 260 in RDA records
* the Record Import Service (RIS) matching and merging to give preference to RDA records over records created according to Anglo American Cataloging Rules 2nd edition (AACR2) and older standards.
In the coming weeks, updated Libraries Australia Cataloguing Client templates reflecting new RDA fields will be available for libraries to download. Information will be distributed via this list as it becomes available.
Thank you for your patience while the system was unavailable.
Please contact the Libraries Australia Help Desk http://www.nla.gov.au/librariesaustralia/contact/ if you have any questions.
