The January 2024 release includes a couple of improvements to the RDA Toolkit, a couple of element name changes, and the introduction of a policy statements from Library and Archives Canada/Bibliothèque et Archives Canada in both English and French (LAC PS and BAC ÉP respectively).</p> <p>One new enhancement to the Toolkit is a new display of locally shared notes in user's profile collection. Once users are logged into their profiles, they can click on "Bookmarks and Notes" in the top menu bar, and they will now find a separate section for locally shared notes. Reminder: Locally shared notes are shared only with profiles associated with the same institutional account.</p> <p>The other new feature is that all policy statement sets are now available to view no matter which RDA language you select. For example, users can now read the French language BAC ÉP while viewing the English language RDA text, and vice versa. Please read <a href="https://www.rdatoolkit.org/sites/default/files/2024-01/Multilingual%20Display%20in%20RDA%20Toolkit.pdf">"Setting Up Multilingual Display in RDA Toolkit"</a> to activate this new feature.</p> <p>Revisions to RDA terminology and practice include two changes to element names that arose from a proposal (<a href="http://www.rda-rsc.org/node/765">RSC/PlacesWG/2023/2</a>) by the Place/Jurisdiction Working Group that were accepted by the RDA Steering Committee at their October meeting.</p> <p>The release updates the French and Norwegian translations, bringing them up to date with the September 2023 release of the Toolkit. The Finnish translation is current with the English RDA text. Updates to policy statements from the British Library, Library of Congress - Program for Cooperative Cataloging, National Library of Finland and National Library of New Zealand were updated as well.

The September 2023 release is a minor one in terms of changes to the English text (corrections to typos and formatting, changes for consistency, and fixes of broken links), but there  are two significant updates – the introduction of a new alternative Guidance menu and completion of the French language translation of official RDA.</p> <p>The new "Orientation Guidance Menu" arranges topics in the Guidance menu thematically to improve user experience of the Toolkit, especially for new cataloguers and educational users. The thematic groups are "About RDA", "Implementations Considerations", and "Additional Guidelines". The default Guidance menu is the alphabetical one that has always been part of the official Toolkit. To switch over to the Orientation menu, log into the your profile, select Manage Views from the Views menu in the top toolbar. In the lower right corner of your view settings you can select the Orientation Guidance menu. This setting is available for both personal and institutional views.</p> <p><img alt="image of the View screen with a red arrow pointing to the check box to activate the Orientation Guidance Menu." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="ec200244-c482-4401-9628-1eb8b76ac8c8" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/GuidanceMenu_1.jpg" width="352" height="141" loading="lazy" /></p> <p>This release also sees the completion of the initial French translation of the official RDA Toolkit that begun a year ago. This release is based on the September 2022 version of the original English instructions and version 4.1.1 of the RDA Reference data published on GitHub. The publication of the first translated pages were posted in September, 2022, with subsequent updates in July 2023 and September 2023. </p> <p>The next release of RDA Toolkit will be in January 2024.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-post-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/55" hreflang="en">News &amp; Information</a></div> Thu, 28 Sep 2023 20:57:41 +0000 jhennelly 294 at https://www.rdatoolkit.org
