--- Comment #12 from Bengal Library Association <blacal.org at gmail.com> ---
Strongly disagree with the initiative of removing ISBD display. This may be
because of the fact that Librarians are not so much involved in Koha
development team. The popularity of Koha in Indian Subcontinent is mostly based
on the ISBD view of entered database. Till now there are a lot of users in this
Subcontinent those want to view the catalogue not in mnemonic format but in
ISBD format. As MARC framework is totally based on AACR2, so removing ISBD
display should be unethical, as I think. Correlating MARC with AACR2 properly
is the only way of integrating the sense of librarianship with the
technological aspects of a library management software, is my opinion. Again as
there are many items described in AACR2 Part 1 and there is only one place of
writing syntax in ISBD template in Koha, at the time of releasing new version
of Koha we are waiting for some easier way of incorporating syntax of each and
every items. Hope effort should be made regarding this not removing the
existing ISBD display. Regards...
