Published on

The RDA Virtual User Group is an online interactive webinar focusing on development planning for RDA Toolkit. Meetings are held 3 to 4 times each year and at different times of day in order to facilitate live participation from users around the world. These sessions are free and open to everyone. Announcements about future meetings of the Virtual User Group will be made here and on other RDA Toolkit social media outlets.

The sessions emphasize open, back-and-forth discussion between users and developers of RDA Toolkit. We believe that transparency in the development process and constructive discourse about changes to RDA Toolkit will best serve its users. In order to foster more substantive discussions in the Virtual User Group, we have introduced the Development Blog. This blog is the best resource for learning about bugs, improvements, and new functions on RDA Toolkit's "to-do" list, and it's the best way for you to weigh in on these issues. Between meetings of the Virtual User Group we encourage everyone to visit the Development Blog (or subscribe to its RSS feed) to stay informed and to share your thoughts and ideas on how to make RDA Toolkit better.
