Diversity of Data: RDA in the international context
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.
