From concept eleven years ago to practice in 2005, the DLF/OCLC Registry of Digital Masters (RDM) was developed in a joint project with the Digital Library Federation (DLF) and OCLC for two main reasons: To provide the coordination and organization of the digitizing of print materials between institutions and to prevent the unnecessary duplication when digitizing those materials.
The Registry of Digital Masters has now matured into a functional registry with 4.5 million records. DLF and OCLC are reviewing the RDM’s success, through a survey and other venues, to determine if any changes are needed to meet the needs of the current and future users.
