Important New Login Information jhennelly Mon, 02/07/2022 - 08:07

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.
