Mitinet's RDA Conversion Service™ helps you update your database to RDA compliant terminology all at once. You don't have to do it yourself or pay record by record to have it done elsewhere.

Why Should You Convert to RDA?

It's true that RDA conversion isn't for everyone, but here are a few reasons you might want to convert.

  • Your district or consortium is converting and you need to bring your database up to speed, the sooner the better!
  • You want to make the items in your collection easier for your patrons to find. RDA is better for the end user since there's more information written in plain language.
  • You want to clean up the variety of abbreviations and formatting and make everything consistent. No more Latin abbreviations or inconsistent date formats.
  • You want to increase access points for your collection. More access points equal more discoverability, increasing collection circulation and minimizing wasted materials.
