Hello, colleagues. Apologies if you receive this via multiple lists.

The following announcement was posted today on the RSC website:

The in-person meeting of the RDA Steering Committee planned for October
2020 at the National Library of Israel has been shifted to a virtual
meeting format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The RSC thanks the National
Library for their invitation and looks forward to holding our annual
in-person meeting in Jerusalem at some point in the future.

The RSC’s October meeting has been transformed into a two-week virtual
meeting (12-15 October and 20-23 October), which will use a mix of
asynchronous and video meeting styles. Four video calls will be scheduled
during these two weeks for interactive discussions. These four video calls
will be staggered across time zones so that members from all regions share
the joy of a middle-of-the-night call.

Observers are welcome to attend the public portions of the video calls. The
agenda items for these calls, as well as the specific dates and times, will
be published on the RSC website in mid-September. Observers will be asked
to register with the RSC Secretary, and space will be limited. As usual,
the RSC does not plan to publish the recordings of its in-person meetings,
which are captured for the purpose of creating accurate minutes.

Agendas <> for the asynchronous
meetings likewise will be published on the RSC website in mid-September. It
is not possible to have observers at an asynchronous meeting due to
software constraints. Information about the discussion and decisions
arising from this meeting will be available in due course from the Outcomes
document and the Minutes <>.
Linda Barnhart, Secretary
RDA Steering Committee
