Studying Up on 3R

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.

RDA Free Trials and Things to Do While Stuck at Home

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.

Extended Free Trials

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. 

Accessing RDA Toolkit Remotely

During this period of concern about the COVID-19 virus, more and more people are working at home or at some other remote location while their institution is closed. Fortunately, RDA Toolkit is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection and a subscription. Now seems like a good time to remind our users how to access RDA Toolkit remotely.
