Cataloging Matters Podcast

James Weinheimer has made available another Cataloging Matters Podcast, Cataloging Matters No. 17: Catalog Records as Data.
Hello everyone and welcome to Cataloging Matters, a series of podcasts about the future of libraries and cataloging, coming to you from the most beautiful, and the most romantic city in the world, Rome, Italy. My name is Jim Weinheimer.

We hear that the problem with catalog records is that they are not data. This means that the records are meant primarily for display and consequently, are of very limited use in the new information environments. What does this mean and, I question, is it correct?
