The RDA Toolkit release schedule for 2013 has been revised. RDA Toolkit releases will take place in May, July, and November in 2013. Releases always take place on the second Tuesday of a release month.
2013 RDA Toolkit Release Schedule
The May release is expected to include French and German translations of RDA as well as the complete rewording of RDA as requested by the U.S. RDA Test Coordinating Committee.
The July release is expected to include the RDA Update from the JSC.
Over the last 6 months the co-publishers for RDA have released the following updates and improvements to RDA Toolkit. Follow the links below to read more about each improvement.
The Committee of Principals (COP) and the Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA (JSC) held independent and joint meetings last week in Chicago. The outcomes of the JSC and COP meetings will be published on the JSC website in the coming weeks. The JSC considered over 50 proposals for revisions to RDA. Approved proposals will be added to RDA and released to RDA Toolkit in April 2013.
A new release was pushed to the live site of RDA Toolkit on October 11, 2011. Releases to RDA Toolkit typically will contain updates to content and metadata, enhancements to RDA Toolkit functionality, and fixes to existing bugs. We have established the second Tuesday of the month as the day for such releases. This is the first example of this new policy. There will not be a release every month, but, when there is one, it will fall on the second Tuesday and be accompanied by a blog announcement such as this.
