Just to note: the content rules do not change when you move data from standard or system to another.  If you are using DACS to determine the content you key into ArchivesSpace, even if you move it to MARC, you are still using DACS.  It doesn’t become RDA when you move the data to MARC, even though RDA is the content standard we currently associate with MARC.

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 interface?
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.
