The Archives of the Mojave Desert Heritage and Cultural Association has no
plans to convert the MARCxml exported from AS into RDA for OCLC. We are in
California so we can upload our exported EAD collection guides directly from
ArchivesSpace to the Online Archive of California (OAC). Once they are
posted to OAC, our collection guides are picked up by OCLC through an
existing conduit with OAC and eventually show up in the search results of
ArchiveGrid and Worldcat. For a very small repository with limited staff,
this is more than enough outreach for us.

Dear fellow ArchivesSpace users,
We at W&L are curious how many member institutions are still adding MARC
records for your manuscript collections to OCLC and/or your local catalog in
addition to having your finding aids available via an ArchivesSpace public
If so, are you turning the MARCxml exported from AS into RDA for OCLC?
Also, we are interested in knowing what other systems you are using to
provide access to finding aids in addition to AS.
Thank you all.
