Thoughts on Shareable Metadata, MODS, and RDA Sarah L. Shreeves University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Electronic Resources Interest Group (ERIG), ALCTS ALA Midwinter, Seattle WA January 20, 2007
Does NOT recommend any one content standard over another
“ Choice and format of titles should be governed by a content standard such as the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition (AACR2), Cataloguing Cultural Objects (CCO), or Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS). Details such as capitalization, choosing among the forms of titles presented on an item, and use of abbreviations should be determined based on the rules in a content standard. One standard should be chosen and used consistently for all records in an OAI set.”
