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. 

Important New Login Information

Due to changes related to the recent site migration, we have encountered a major issue related to profile logins. In order to resolve this issue we have had to make a change to how IP authentication works. Users will no longer be instantly logged into their account with IP authentication. 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.

Server Migration Update

UPDATE: As of 3pm CST on January 14th, the migration is complete. 

UPDATE: The migration process is underway. You may encounter a brief disruption to service as the change propagates across the internet. Simply clear your browser cache and refresh. Contact us at rdatoolkit@ala.org if you experience an access issue that lasts longer than an hour.

UPDATE: The migration has been postponed to Friday, January 14th.

Server Change Coming to RDA Toolkit

During the month of May work began on transferring RDA Toolkit and related websites to a new server and under the support and maintenance of a new developer. The sites included in this move are access.rdatoolkit.org and orginal.rdatoolkit.org, as well as  rdatoolkit.org and rda-rsc.org. All the content currently on these sites will be transferred to the new server. This work will be completed by late October.
