Sign Up for the RDA Toolkit

Sign up now and you’ll be ready for the start in mid-June of free open access to the RDA Toolkit!

The Co-Publishers invite you to try the RDA Toolkit at no cost from the launch in June through August 31, 2010. Sign up now and we’ll send you an email with your login information as soon as open access becomes available in mid-June. We are opening the sign-up process early to allow institutions time to coordinate their requests for institutional access.

Please sign up the same way you plan to subscribe.

·         Institutional access if there will ever be more than one user at your site (institutional access typically uses IP authentication or a referring URL).
·         Solo-user access if you will only have one user at your site (login/password authentication only).

Most users should sign up for institutional access. Why?
·         Your institution can have an unlimited number of concurrent users during the open-access period
·         You and your colleagues can test the sharing of workflows and mappings within your institution
·         You and your colleagues can take advantage of IP authentication or a referring URL to avoid institutional login (users will just log in to access their personal profile)
·         You and your colleagues can participate more smoothly in your institution’s decisions regarding RDA implementation

Sign up now and look forward to getting your login information in mid-June.

RDA Toolkit
The resource to help you navigate from AACR2 to RDA—the new, unified standard for resource description and access, designed for the digital world and an expanding universe of metadata users. As you use the RDA Toolkit, you’ll notice ongoing improvements and additions.
Resource Description and Access (RDA) and the RDA Toolkit are published by the Co-Publishers for RDA (the American Library Association, the Canadian Library Association, and Facet Publishing, the publishing arm of CILIP: the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals).
