The original text and data for this slideshow, presented Feb. 4, 2011 at the Amigos' RDA@Your Library webinar, are found in a chapter of a book that I edited, published December 2010 by Libraries Unlimited, c2011, ABC-CLIO. The book is titled: Conversations with Catalogers in the 21st Century. Many of the images in the presentation, and all of the data, have been extracted from the original survey results available on SurveyMonkey.com. My hope for this survey was not only that it would show a snapshot of respondents feelings and knowledge regarding RDA’s structure and implementation, but that it also might serve as an image of the feelings and observations of the larger cataloging world regarding RDA and AACR2. I wondered what you were thinking, and I wanted to share your thoughts with the powers that be and the cataloging world. My presentation only shows an analysis of the overall data for all types of libraries. It does not provide for any analysis of individual library types, such as K-12 Libraries, or cataloging vendors, for example. SurveyMonkey does have a data analysis component called a filter, which lets you to look for specific data or patterns within the results, so that you can build queries that allow you to analyze various subsets of your overall data. If you are interested, I would like for you to use and analyze the original survey data, to help in the process of RDA and AACR2 understanding. Therefore, I have made the data available for your review and filtering, down to the individual response level. I also have created a spreadsheet of the same data for you to manipulate and sort to your heart’s content. The link to the survey data and the spreadsheet is at the end of this presentation.
