1Danskin, A.: ¬The Anglo-American Authority File : a PCC story.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 58(2020) no.3/4, S.221-229.
Abstract: This article examines the motivations for the collaboration between the British Library and Library of Congress to develop a joint (Anglo-American) authority file. It describes the obstacles that had to be overcome for the British Library to become a Name Authority Cooperative (NACO) "copy holder", or node. It considers the contribution the British Library made to NACO, the benefits it has derived from participation in Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC), and concludes by looking ahead to the next 25 years.

3Danskin, A. ; Dunsire, G. ; Edwards, S.: RDA international.
In: Zeitschrift für Bibliothekswesen und Bibliographie. 62(2015) H.6, S.305-317.
Abstract: RDA has always been a continually evolving standard that aims to reflect the requirements of the cataloguing community. Simon Edwards will highlight the steps towards a further internationalisation and exploration of wider cultural heritage description communities. Gordon Dunsire will point out the potential implementations of RDA data in various database structures and describes the possibilities for further work with RDA and linked data scenarios in international communities. The third part of the article reflects the experience of the British Library in applying RDA in the last years. Alan Danskin gives an overview of the transition period from the project organization until training.

5Danskin, A.: RDA implementation and application : British Library.
In: o-bib: Das offene Bibliotheksjournal. 1(2014) Nr.1, S.187-191.
Abstract: The British Library implemented the new international cataloguing standard RDA in April 2013. The paper describes the reasons for the change, the project organization, the necessary adaptations to the systems and the training programs. Altogether, 227 staff were trained. Productivity levels by now are comparable with the levels for AACR2. However, there was a tendency to spend too much time on authority control.

6Danskin, A.: Linked and open data : RDA and bibliographic control.
Abstract: RDA: Resource Description and Access is a new cataloguing standard which will replace the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd edition, which has been widely used in libraries since 1981. RDA, like AACR2, is a content standard providing guidance and instruction on how to identify and record attributes or properties of resources which are significant for discovery. However, RDA is also an implementation of the FRBR and FRAD models. The RDA element set and vocabularies are being published on the Open Metadata Registry as linked open data. RDA provides a rich vocabulary for the description of resources and for expressing relationships between them. This paper describes what RDA offers and considers the challenges and potential of linked open data in the broader framework of bibliographic control.

7Danskin, A.: "Tomorrow never knows" : the end of cataloguing?.
Abstract: This paper reviews the perceived threats to the future of cataloguing posed by the increasing volume of publications in all media, coupled with a resource base which is declining in real terms. It argues that cataloguing is more rather than less important in such an environment and considers some of the ways in which cataloguing will have to change in order to survive. ; The purpose of this paper is to review the challenges confronting cataloguing as we have known it and to consider how these challenges might be confronted and whether they may be surmounted. The main focus of this paper is on cataloguing rather than the catalogue, although it is obviously difficult to separate one from the other. First of all, what does "cataloguing" mean? For the purposes of this paper I have adopted a broad definition incorporating the following activities: - description of the resource sufficient for purposes of identification and for differentiation from other similar resources - identification and control of access points - identification and control of relationships with other resources - subject analysis of the resource - assignment of subject indexing terms - assignment of classification numbers The challenges facing cataloguing are all too well known. In no particular order, the major challenges are: - Increasing inputs - New kinds of information resource - Competition from other mediation services. - Perception that cataloguing is high cost and offers poor value for money. - Fiscal constraints - Declining workforce This is a daunting list. We have a choice, we could, to paraphrase John Lennon, "Turn off our minds, relax and float down stream", until we retire, take voluntary redundancy, or retrain as marketing consultants; or, we can choose to confront these challenges and consider what they really mean for cataloguing.

9Danskin, A.: International initiatives in authority control.
In: Library review. 47(1998) no.4, S.200-205.
Abstract: The requirement for and development of the Anglo-American Authority File (AAAF) is described. The mechanics of its production and updating are indicated and its role within British Library cataloguing practice examined. Further developments of the file are discussed and developments through IFLA towards international exchange of authority data are described, indicating both opportunities and difficulties. The EC-funded project AUTHOR is outlined and, finally, the British Library's work with the Library of Congress and American Library Association on extending LCSH to works of fiction is described.

10Danskin, A.: ¬The Anglo-American authority file : implementation of phase 2.
In: International cataloguing and bibliographic control. 27(1998) no.4, S.72-73.
Abstract: Outlines the benefits sought by the Anglo American Authority File (AAF) project in replacing with a common authority file the Library of Congress US Name Authority File (USNAF) and the British Library Name Authority List (BLNAL). Describes the progress and techniques in the implementation of the project to create the AAF in the British Library (BL) and explains how it is used by cataloguers. Phase 1 was completed in 1996 with the loading of USNAF. Records were in USMARC format but searchable and reusable in conjunction with BLNAL. Phase 2 to eliminate duplicates was completed in 1997 for personal names and corporate names will be dealt with in 1999 when the BL Corporate Bibliographic System is also due to go live. This will prepare the ground for Phase 3, retrospective conversion to integrate BLNAL with USNAF into a single unified file

13Danskin, A.: ¬The retrospective conversion of the British Library catalogue of printed books.
In: International cataloguing and bibliographic control. 26(1997) no.4, S.90-91.
Abstract: The conversion of the British Library Catalogue of Printed Books (to 1975), took place between 1987 and 1991. This conversion, unique in size and scope, posed problems which were not easily addressed by conventional conversion techniques. Summarises the decisions taken to resolve these problems, the methodology by which conversion was successfully achieved and considers the importance of these initial conditions in the subsequent development of the catalogue

17Danskin, A.: ¬A world turned upside down.
In: An leabharlann. 10(1993) no.2, S.35-36,38-40.
Abstract: Presents a rebuttal of C.N. Cinneide's article: 'A foolish consistency ...' In the original. In the original article it was argued that the efforts to achieve authority control in online catalogues are both misguided and counter productive, and that although authority control may be beneficial in a traditional, manually produced catalogue, it is of little or no value in the online environment. Suggested that in future authority control may be dispensed with, thus releasing professional library staff from routine cataloguing tasks and leading to a greater integration of library services. Argues that the author fails to understand that the controlled vocabulary provided by authority headings is a prerequisite for effective information retrieval in online systems and that the cost of autority control will be reduced in future as a consequence of developments in technology and by cooperation between cataloguing agencies
