On April 30, there will be a major update to the RDA Toolkit BETA site that will include a stabilized version of the English test as well as added and improved functionality to the BETA site. A detailed announcement about this release is coming. However, join us on May 10 for a free 90-minute webinar that will review the impact of the April 30 update. You'll learn about the new entities and concepts that have emerged from the IFLA Library Reference Model and the restructuring of the RDA standard. You'll also be provided with a demo of the new BETA site's functionality and features. If you're unable to attend, register for the event and a link to the recording will be sent via email the next business day. Information on further orientation and training events to be held later this year will be provided as well.
