Outreach Event in Montréal
The RDA Steering Committee (RSC) met on the campus of McGill University in Montréal during the week of October 22-26 (more on this meeting to come). Before the start of the meeting, the RSC took part in an outreach event at the the Grande Bibliothèque, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BANQ). The event was entitled The redesigned RDA Toolkit: what you need to know to get ready and was conducted as a bilingual event with presentations in both French and English with simultaneous translation available to attendees.
Daniel Paradis of BANQ and chair of the RDA Translations Working Group presided over the event which included welcoming remarks from the Jean-Louis Roy, Chief Executive Officer of BANQ. Slides and video recordings of the presentations are linked below. The video recordings unfortunately include some audio echo but are still viewable.
