RDA Profile Guide
The RDA Enrichment Profile was created to help simplify and explain the complex options available from Backstage Library Works when choosing to enrich current AACR2 records with RDA content, or to offer validation and cleanup to existing RDA records. The profile covers topics such as: Validation Options, GMD to CMC conversions and additions, Descriptive and Access Field updates, and Reports.
Sections - RDA
- Step 1 - Data Information - File transfer and data formats

In an effort to consolidate questions and streamline the intuitive flow of the guide, we have recently updated the wiki and printed versions of the guide. We hope these changes complement the new version of the online profile.
The current version was edited April 2013.
