This is not an RDA training session – sort of.

RDA is a content standard and as such does not rely on any particular encoding. This session will be working with RIMMF (RDA In Multiple Metadata Formats). We will learn how to use RIMMF to enter RDA data as per the guidelines, free from MARC. RIMMF will also help you “see” the resource in a WEMI (Work, Expression, Manifestation, Item) tree.

This hands-on session requires a laptop with RIMMF 3 (go to and MarcEdit (go to pre-loaded plus access to a USB2 port; flash drives will be provided. Pen, paper, an enquiring mind and a willingness to learn.
