The RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign (3R) Project is a year-long effort to improve the RDA Toolkit in several different ways. Restructuring includes generalizing existing instructions where possible, implementing the four-fold path (unstructured description, structured description, identifiers, and actionable links) wherever applicable, and incorporating new elements from the IFLA Library Reference Model. Redesign includes greater flexibility in the display of instructions, improved user interaction with the Toolkit, and better tracking of revision history. Kathy Glennan, ALA Representative to the RDA Steering Committee, will bring attendees up-to-date about the planned changes to the Toolkit, which will be rolled out in April 2018.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion, attendees will understand the scope and goals of the 3R Project, including:

  • RDA Toolkit redesign; 
  • incorporation of the IFLA Library Reference Model entities; and 
  • the proposed reorganization of the Toolkit instructions.
