    Hi!

    Be sure to register for ALA Digital Reference's September webinar if you haven't already.  It's free and open to anyone interested in RDA as an international standard.

    Translating RDA: a Discussion of the Opportunities and Challenges of an International Cataloging Standard (FREE)

    Monday, September 20, 2021, 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM CDT

    This webinar features three 15-minute presentations covering a wide range of topics that concern the international RDA community, among them: How decisions to translate RDA are made, an overview of the translation process, partial translations vs. full translations, generating support for translations, RDA teaching and training after translation, updates on RDA Toolkit translations in development, and the specific experiences of translating RDA in Arabic, Finnish and French. Expected speakers include ALA Digital Reference Director James Hennelly, and RDA translators Rania Osman, Daniel Paradis and Marja-Liisa Seppälä; the translators will be available for a Q&A moderated by James Hennelly, who will lead them in guided discussion before welcoming live questions from the audience.
