There are a number of entities that routinely offer online training for RDA cataloging.
To allow for training of future and current catalogers and other metadata professionals who need to become familiar with RDA: Resource Description and Access, we are offering access to RDA Toolkit. An institution must purchase a subscription that matches its ongoing cataloging needs and then inform RDA Toolkit staff via the RDA Toolkit Support Center of the number of additional users needed for any given training or class period. RDA Toolkit access will be granted for that period to the additional users at no additional charge. If an institution does not yet subscribe, but wants access for LIS or other training, the Institutional subscription base price will apply.
