GPO to Switch to RDA in April

Another major cataloging institution, the GPO, plans to switch to the RDA standard in April.
The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has created a Resource Description and Access (RDA) implementation team to ensure a smooth transition from AACR2 to RDA. GPO cataloging staff are continuing their training efforts, and are now working on sample record creation, the identification of local practices and formal PCC (Program for Cooperative Cataloging) review. Full implementation is expected in April, 2013.
I was made aware of this by Gary Price of InfoDocket.
