  • I’m not going to go into a lot of detail regarding RDA itself, but it is important to note two key aspects of RDA in regard to using RDA Toolkit.
  • It is essentials to become familiar with the meaning of the entities and the relationships that exists between the entities. These concepts provide the structural foundation of RDA are crucial to navigating the RDA TOC.
  • Much more information is available at our website, the JSC website, the LC website, including helpful presentations by Barbara Tillett and other LC staff.
  • RDA is the primary document on RDA Toolkit. The Toolkit represents the best way to interact with the RDA standard.
  • Here are the documents that you will currently find on the RDA Toolkit. Of course, we hope to add more in the future. We will also be adding links to other off-site documents.
  • Create workflows, mapping, bookmarks. Share your content with others at your institution. In the future there will be a greater list of user preferences that must be set through your profile.
