Post AGM Seminar: RIMMF 3 & RDA data balls (Deborah Fritz & Gordon Dunsire)

Want to know more about RDA, RIMMF and r-balls? Book your place now!

We are delighted to welcome back Deborah Fritz of TMQ, who will give a presentation on RIMMF3. RIMMF (RDA in Many Metadata Formats) is a free editor for pure RDA data that can be used as an RDA visualisation and training tool. Deborah will provide a practical demonstration of version 3 , and explain how the tool can help support RDA-MARC mapping, linked data export, and give us an insight into future of cataloguing.

Deborah will be followed by Gordon Dunsire (Chair of the Joint Steering Committee on RDA) who will delve into the mysteries of RDA data, r-balls, and Jane-athons.

Both the AGM and seminar are free to attend, but registration is required. To book a place please contact CIGS Secretary, Paul Cunnea, at p.cunnea@nls.uk
