Where Did It Go?

The new beta Toolkit includes some significant differences in how the instructions are organized and arranged. Some may have trouble locating where some instructions have moved to. Linda Barnhart, the RSC Secretary, and Kate James, the RDA Examples Editor, prepared the document linked to below contains a partial list of elements and instructions that have changed from the original Toolkit to the beta Toolkit. Download this document as an introduction to how the instructions have been reorganized.

Where to Find Examples in the Beta Toolkit

We have heard from some users that examples have been few and far between. Because the RDA text is still a work in progress on the beta site, it has been difficult to write examples. When the 3R Project is complete we expect there to be many more examples in the new Toolkit as compared to the original one. Also the new Toolkit will feature new types of examples, including examples for recording methods, relationship examples, and examples in context. The attached list will guide users to instructions with a variety of examples.
