The RDA Sandbox Access to a RDA/FRBR database and a Virtua client Approximately 500,000 FRBRized records Specialized documentation Started mid-September 2010 Scheduled to end January 31, 2012? No earlier than 2013? 57 users (June 20, 2011) Added 1,261 records Modified 1,380 records
The RDA Sandbox Comments from users … we found the structure of records in the RDA Sandbox innovative as regards search and display … … used it when teaching classes …. The students were rather fascinated to be able to see the full WEMI structure in the database. …it helped them [the staff] to understand more about RDA and FRBR. In my opinion the best thing about the Sandbox is its clarity. It makes it easy to explain the model. In a sense it has solved the problem with FRBR in MARC environment.
