Ag-athon: Fun with Agatha, Deborah, Gordon and RIMMF

The CILIP Cataloguing and Indexing Group (CIG) is pleased to invite you to this rare opportunity to experience using RIMMF (RDA in Many Metadata Formats) with Deborah Fritz (RIMMF co-developer) and Gordon Dunsire (Chair, Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA).

RIMMF is a training tool designed and created by Deborah and Richard Fritz to help cataloguers think in RDA terms and see how RDA might look in the future.

Would you like to learn more about RIMMF? Want to take part in hands-on and collaborative session? Want to contribute your data to the R-ball? Want to find out how many alter-egos Agatha Christie had? Would you relish the chance to take part in a discussion with the creator of RIMMF? Then come along to this exciting event.
