CIG Discussion E-forum on Adopting and Working with RDA

Join us for our next e-forum, to be held on Monday 13th & Tuesday 14th January 2014. Hosted by the Cataloguing & Indexing Group (CIG) of CILIP, co-moderated by Thurstan Young from the British Library, Katrina Clifford from Kingston University and Helen Williams from the London School of Economics this e-forum is free and open to everyone!

To date, RDA has been implemented by 16 organizations within the U.K. including the British Library & Cambridge University Library. A further 14 organizations plan to implement over the next 18 months. This CIG hosted e-forum will address the process of preparing for RDA. Topics to be covered include:

  • business case
  • training implications
  • technical infrastructure
  • productivity
  • cataloguing policy

Participants will get practical guidance appropriate to the stage they are at in the implementation process.

The discussion will allow UK librarians and cataloguers to air questions and concerns, and to share ideas and plans.  Whether you feel you are a novice or an expert, we invite anyone interested in RDA to take part – cataloguers, systems librarians, technical services managers, students, etc.  This will be a very useful e-event for everyone considering the implications of RDA.

What is a CIG e-forum?

A CIG e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion. E-forums are scheduled to last two days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it’s free and open to both members and non-members of CIG.


The e-forum takes place on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th January 2014.

On both days, sessions will begin at 10am and end at 4pm (UK time).

Instructions for registration are available at:

Once you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the email list. Participation is free and open to anyone.
