RDA Lab Series Preview with Instructor Kate James

As we anticipate the start of the RDA Lab Series on Tuesday, June 30th, we thought you’d like to virtually meet its presenter a little early.  Kate James, a cataloging expert and former RDA Steering Committee Examples Editor, tells us about herself and her goals for the upcoming webinars in this feature Q&A.  You can hear more from Kate about all things RDA during the series – which is scheduled to run every Tuesday at 2 PM CDT until December 8, 2020.

As we move closer to the completion of the 3R Project and the December switchover of the beta site, we would like to reinforce our continued commitment to collecting community feedback on the redesigned RDA Toolkit, and our support service during this period of transition. Toward that end, we’ve prepared this four-question survey that should take you just a couple of minutes to complete .
