With many catalogers and metadata specialists working remotely these days, some may find that they have a bit more time on their hands and have an inkling to dive into a topic that has been put off for awhile. This might be an opportune time to dive into the 3R project and the beta RDA Toolkit. In December the beta site will become the official RDA site, and there's plenty of time to get up to speed on the changes to the RDA standard and new Toolkit functionality.
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 .
During this period where many, many folks are staying at home and either working remotely or just trying to be productive in some way, we have a few options to offer.
Starting today, free trials of RDA Toolkit will run for 60 days instead of 30. If you signed up for a free trial in the last 30 days, you will still get the extra 30 days. If you had a free trial a long time ago, no worries. You can still sign up for a 60 day trial.
The RDA Toolkit YouTube channel has a lot to offer to RDA Toolkit subscribers and the RDA curious. There are recordings of presentations, introductions to new RDA concepts, and training videos for the redesigned Toolkit. The latest addition to the channel is a series of videos that provide guidance and tips on conducting searches in the beta site.
