The RDA Board and RDA Steering Committee (RSC) are seeking a qualified library professional with expertise in RDA and cataloging to take on the role of RSC Secretary. The purpose of the role is to support and coordinate processes which support the development and promotion of RDA. This is a contract position with a 3-year term, and there is no location requirement (the work may be done from home). There will be a period of overlap with the term of the current secretary to allow for thorough training and a fluid transition for this crucial post.

The webinar will highlight the book's features and illustrate best practices for using it in your work. Mr.
