One Response to Proposal: Production Statement (RDA 2.7) Transcription Guidelines

  1. Kathy Glennan says:

    (I have previously shared the following comment with the drafters of the proposal before they completed the version CC:DA will discuss. I think it still has some relevance.)

    “The only concern I have, and it comes from my very focused experience cataloging Arnold Schoenberg music manuscripts decades ago, is that at least some manuscripts don’t present the same problems as the other unique resources addressed by the paper. (We knew Schoenberg’s hand; we knew the provenance of the manuscripts; and most of the manuscripts were self-describing, with titles and dates of composition.) I suspect that more libraries (or maybe just more catalogers) describe these kinds of unique objects, and both AACR2 and RDA as currently written are less disturbing for these cases.”
