  1. Great job Mr. James Weinheimer. Such a complicated thing explained in such a nice way. Visual examples are very helpful in the understanding of the topic. It shows the depth of your knowledge and experience. I will recommend this on RDA Blog. Thanks for posting.

    Thank you for this excellent comparison of a single record in different description versions – it’s excellent. As a practising cataloguer I’m currently particularly interested in linked data, and having the XML and the Linked Data views of the same record together will make communication with the I.T. experts so much easier.

    Thanks for making this book available. I have noticed that there are many people who work in our technical services area who related to visual explanations such as this and I think that the comparisons with MARCXML and BIBFRAME will be particularly useful to them.

    I don’t think that I would have catalogued the thesis in the same way but it makes sense to provide somewhat simplified records for demonstration purposes.

    Thank you for sharing this.
