Testimonials • Amalin Ferguson, NPS Library Program Manager, Resource Information Services Division (RISD), National Information Services Center (NISC), Office of Information Resources (OIR), National Park Service (NPS), Fairfax, CA [January 15, 2013, e-mail] -- Hi Salman, I noticed your title in the About Me section of your RDA blog. By the way, the blog looks like a great resource. I'm adding the link to our short list of professional resources. I discovered the blog via Google Apps Alert Service (I set one up for RDA, FRBR, Dub • Dillon Wackerman, [Dec 9, 2012, e-mail] -- Hello Salman, Visited your RDA blog today. Great work! I'm sure many students and professionals appreciate the time you've put in.lin Core, vuFind, etc.).
  • 13. Testimonials • Celeripedean, Blog [November 21, 2012] -- Whether you are for or against RDA, I find that there are a number of resources out there.Resource Description and Access Blog by Salman Haider is one of those new resources. Quite simply, it is a blog about RDA. In other words, it attempts to bring under one roof resources about RDA. For the moment, it links out to the RDA Toolkit, and the schedule of webinars to help you learn about and to use the RDA Toolkit. It also provides links to the LC training materials and external working groups on RDA. If you don’t know where to start, this is as good a place as any. But beware, you won’t find any “content” so to speak. There’s no link to RDA itself. Also, content in RDA land tends to be updating rather quickly; sections are being corrected and/or added….still. Make sure you check the currency of any links and the content. Also sign up for webinars now so that you can understand if these resources listed in this blog are slightly dated or just what you need.
