The RDA Examples have been updated to reflect changes in the RDA instructions and the MARC 21 bibliographic and authority formats. Some examples have been replaced, and a few new examples have been added. These examples show an RDA element set view and a MARC encoding view of bibliographic and authority records. The examples are freely available to all. No subscription to RDA Toolkit is required to access and download the examples.
The Thing-athon is a hackathon for metadata created using RDA: Resource Description and Access and the RDA editor RIMMF, where catalogers, developers, and vendors get together to explore RDA and its application beyond the MARC environment.
