A new release of RDA Toolkit will be published on February 13, 2018. This will be the final release to the current Toolkit before the rollout of the 3R Project. Releases typically contain changes to content and metadata, enhancements to RDA Toolkit functionality, and fixes to existing bugs, however this release will include the debut of the Norwegian translations and some corrections to the Finnish translation. The details of the December release follow.
The Norwegian translation has been provided through an agreement between the Copyright Holders of RDA and the Nasjonalbiblioteket (National Library of Norway). The Norwegian translation will be current with the April 2017 Update.
There will be no changes to English RDA content or the other translations in this release with one exception. There will be an update to the Finnish translation of RDA and to Suomalaisten kirjastojen linjaukset (Finnish policy statements) to fix some errors from the Decemeber release.
This is the final release to the current Toolkit. The next Toolkit release will be the rollout of the redesigned Toolkit. The current Toolkit will remain online for a year following the completion of 3R, but its content will be frozen. It will not be updated to align with the IFLA Library Reference model (LRM) or any other changes to RDA guidance.
