A new release of RDA Toolkit was posted on June 22, 2022. It included updates to both the English and Finnish versions of RDA. The changes made to the English text of RDA for this release were almost entirely editorial (correcting typos and other minor corrections). Policy statements from the Library of Congress - Program for Cooperative Cataloging, the British Library and Music Library Association Best Practices were also updated. The Finnish translation of RDA was updated to make it current with the March 2022 release of English RDA.

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.
