RDA Orientation Workshop

Birmingham, Wednesday 11th December 2019, 9.30am - 5pm

The Cataloguing & Indexing Group, in conjunction with the UK Committee on RDA (UKCor) and the Mercian Metadata Special Interest Group (MMG) is delighted to present the second in a series of two RDA Orientation Workshops.

This event will mirror the Edinburgh workshop coordinated by the Cataloguing and Indexing Group in Scotland (21 November 2019) and is open to all.


The day will be divided into two main parts. A seminar with presentations from Alan Danskin (British Library), Thurstan Young (British Library) and Gordon Dunsire (RDA Steering Committee) will prepare you for a practical session later in the day.

The practical portion of the day will consist of using RIMMF (RDA in Many Metadata Formats) to explore different scenarios using elements and concepts from the RDA beta toolkit. This will allow delegates to put RDA into practice and explore the ideas and implications of changes to the RDA toolkit (3R and LRM).

Delegates will need to bring their own laptop to the event with RIMMF4 installed. Additional information will be provided to delegates on registration to the event and RDA experts will be on site on the day to support delegates in the practical sessions.
