The discussion will take place on Monday, 25 June 2018 from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

*Diversity of Data: RDA in the international context*

This one-day conference will be held on 23 August 2018 at the National
Library of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and is organised by the RDA Board.

The Conference will benefit both RDA users and non-users. It will cover the
latest developments in the RDA cataloguing standard, providing a forum for
discussion, learning and sharing. There will be a focus on the potential of
RDA for libraries in non-English speaking countries and information about
the latest developments in the RDA standard and the Toolkit.

There will be sessions on the international uptake and implementation of
RDA, with speakers from around the world highlighting different
implementation experiences. Experts will give an in-depth demonstration of
the new RDA Toolkit and explore RDA in a multilingual world where
cataloguing traditions and practices may vary from country to country.
There will be presentations on features that support translations, RDA’s
ability to accommodate local practices in a global context and its
potential for use in a linked data environment.

The program will feature speakers from around the world with the
opportunity to meet and network with experienced RDA implementers.

There is no fee to attend the event, but advance registration
<> is required.
