Welsh, Anne, Carty, Celine and Williams, Helen (2012) "Mind the [Trans-Atlantic] gap please": awareness and training needs of UK catalogers. Journal of library metadata, 12 (2-3). pp. 242-263. ISSN 1938-6389
Methodology: Action research. Analysis of emails sent to an e-forum on RDA in the UK in April 2011. Emails were assigned tags based on contents. Email addresses were analyzed for sector. The resource list co-created by participants was analyzed for format and country of creator(s). Findings: More than 200 people subscribed and received 195 emails sent by 38 individuals about current actions; training; training needs; the hybrid catalog and cataloger judgment; implementation; productivity; the RDA Toolkit; MARC and FRBR. Topical concerns were found to be the same as for U.S. RDA testers, although accompanied by “vague concerns” about whether they were acting quickly enough.
