Value of Accessing Individual Records

Hello all,
Most of the concerns about combining the RLG Union Catalog with WorldCat are about needing access to the individual records in a cluster.
AP catalogers also feel strongly about preserving access to individual records in a cluster.
Accessing the individual library records is an important and unique feature.
We are able to choose, compare, combine and edit other libraries’ records in RLIN. Sharing more records gives us a chance to view different decisions on subject headings, call numbers, uniform titles, etc. Viewing different decisions is also a very important habit not only in cataloging but also on many issues in our working and personal life.
Many thanks to those of you who responded.
