Take Off on the Post-Migration RDA Toolkit with Our New Demo

The recent migration of RDA Toolkit to new servers also included a change in the authentication system for the website. This 26-minute demo, led by James Hennelly, covers changes to login practices and management of subscriptions related to this new environment. The webinar does not cover the application of RDA instructions or concepts, but it is useful for those who manage subscriptions or train cataloging professionals who need to determine how to set up a subscription to RDA Toolkit and get access for their staff or students.

Going forward, to access both the official RDA Toolkit and the original site via IP authentication, you will have to click the login button without filling in a username or password. Here's a quick breakdown on how to login into RDA Toolkit.
