And that's just for the largest libraries - the national libraries. Large academics might follow closely behind. For smaller libraries, how long will it take? For one thing - are any of the ILS vendors ready for RDA? Will they be by 2010? Until they are, the ability of most libraries to switch will be limited.

Chris Schwartz

I don't think the changes we'll see in 2010 will be that dramatic, so the transitions for MARC and ILS vendors should be minimal. However, the kind of radical structural change the JSC is recommended for an ideal RDA implementation (scenario #1) would be extreme.

Irvin Flack

I agree. I think RDA will be a 'slow burn' in terms of change. It's only when the switch to the Scenario 1 happens (I imagine via the DC/RDA work) that the big changes will happen.
