RDA Toolkit is an integrated, browser-based, online product that allows users to interact with a collection of cataloging-related documents and resources including RDA: Resource Description and keyword searching all documents; the ability to create, store, and share personal and local cataloging documents; and an unlimited number of profiles that allow individual users to set and save personal preferences. Subscriptions to RDA Toolkit are sold by the user. A user is a single access seat to the toolkit. Buying more than one user allows the subscriber to have multiple users concurrently access the toolkit. A subscriber may buy any number of users.

Pricing

Effective January 1, 2017, RDA Toolkit pricing will be set in U.S. dollars only. Given the international growth of the Toolkit and the challenges of keeping up with fluctuations in the currency exchange market, simplifying our pricing practices will allow us to provide more reliable service to our customers. Though the price is given only in U.S. dollars, customers are still able to pay in the currency of their choice. The cost will be based on the exchange rate on the day of purchase. The price chart below reflects cost per user.

Number of Users Cost Per User
1 $191
2 to 4 $181
5 to 9 $177
10 to 14 $172
15 to 19 $168
20 +   $163

LIS Programs

Now that RDA is implemented and is standard curriculum in cataloging courses, we are offering a 50% discount to LIS programs for instructors and students with a minimum purchase of 10 users for a full year subscription. The options to purchase RDA Print will still be available.

Examples (In US Dollars)

1 user = $191

2 users = $181 per user x 2 = $362

5 users = $177 per user x 5 = $885

20 users= $163 per user x 20 = $3260
