Resource Description and Access (RDA) is a new standard for describing all types of resources. Columbia University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign evaluated the guidelines by means of the Dublin Core element set during the U.S. National Libraries RDA Test, held from October to December 2010. This paper speaks to the issues which emerged during the test and what each institution did to address them. Test set-ups employed, and tools used, as well as a selection of problems encountered are described in the following summation of findings.
