Softlink Preparing for RDA
Softlink's Liberty and Oliver ILS (Integrated Library System) now include support for three of the high impact aspects of the new Resource Description and Access (RDA) standard.
The RDA changes which have been included for Liberty and Oliver, v5, are support for three new MARC fields: 336 (Content type), 337 (Media type) and 338 (Carrier type), to ensure that organizations can readily adopt the RDA changes when they are implemented.
As a major provider of ILS worldwide, Softlink is dedicated to developing their solutions to support current library trends, according to Mr Dion Dias, Softlink's Product Manager.
"Our system updates include preparation for new trends, standards and issues in the library industry, as well as enhancement requests from our clients," he said.
"Softlink is continually focused on developing solutions to provide the best possible product for libraries."
The new RDA standard has been implemented in the MARC format. RDA is set to replace the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2).
