RDA Toolkit is an integrated, browser-based, online product that allows users to interact with a collection of cataloging-related documents and resources including RDA: Resource Description and keyword searching all documents; the ability to create, store, and share personal and local cataloging documents; and an unlimited number of profiles that allow individual users to set and save personal preferences. Subscriptions to RDA Toolkit are sold by the user. A user is a single access seat to the toolkit.

Posting for RSC Secretary

The RDA Board and RDA Steering Committee (RSC) are seeking a qualified library professional with expertise in RDA and cataloging to take on the role of RSC Secretary. The purpose of the role is to support and coordinate processes which support the development and promotion of RDA. This is a contract position with a 3-year term, and there is no location requirement (the work may be done from home). There will be a period of overlap with the term of the current secretary to allow for thorough training and a fluid transition for this crucial post.

Introducing the Master Profile

In the past six months two new translations (Finnish and Italian) and a new set of policy statements (Finnish SKLs) have been added to RDA Toolkit, bringing the total of toolkit translations to five and policy statements documents to five. Of course this means more colorful icons popping up in the RDA display.
