    The RDA Steering Committee (RSC) seeks a qualified library professional with expertise in RDA and cataloging to take on the role of RDA Examples Editor for a two-year term.

    The purpose of the role is to support the RSC in the development and maintenance of examples in RDA: Resource Description and Access. The RDA Examples Editor creates and maintains examples in RDA, provides examples for the Toolkit website, chairs the Examples Working Group, and serves as an ex-officio member of the Translations Working Group.

    There will be a period of overlap with the term of the current Examples Editor to allow for thorough training and a fluid transition for this crucial post. The successful candidate would train with Honor Moody from October-December 2023. Honor will be staying on as a member of the Examples Working Group, and will be available for questions in January 2024. Their term would then commence in January 2024 and end in December 2026. The incumbent may apply for a second term.

    The RDA Examples Editor is a member of the RDA Steering Committee and is expected to attend regular conference calls as well as the annual RSC in-person meeting. Travel and subsistence expenses to the annual meeting are covered by the RDA Fund.

    A description of the position responsibilities and requirements is available here. This is an exciting opportunity to be an integral part of the team responsible for developing RDA, the global standard enabling discovery of content.
