RDA in Europe: making it happen!
EURIG – JSC Seminar on RDA
Copenhagen, Denmark, 8th of August 2010, 09.00-17.00

First notification!

On the 8th of August 2010 the European RDA Interest Group (EURIG) and the Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA (JSC) are planning a seminar on the new cataloguing rules RDA (Resource Description and Access) and their implications for libraries in Europe and in particular its non-English speaking cataloguing communities. The seminar will take place the day before the IFLA World Library Information Congress starts in Gothenburg, but is not a part of the congress. The day, however, has been chosen to make it possible for people attending the IFLA Congress to also go to this seminar on their way to Gothenburg.

Topics to be covered during the seminar will include:

*       RDA: Background and context
*       RDA: A demonstration of the online toolkit
*       RDA: A non-Anglo-American perspective
*       Translation issues
*       Implementation plans
*       Future development of the rules
*       Reports from European countries considering a move to RDA
*       Time for discussion

The venue of the seminar is Dronningesalen at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, kindly offered to us by the Royal Library. After the meeting there are trains connecting directly to Gothenburg from Copenhagen Central Station (, approx. 3,5 hours travel time. There are also flights to Gothenburg from Copenhagen Airport, approx. 45 minutes travel time.

An official invitation will be sent out at the end of February with further information on price and how to register.
