RDA Toolkit Subscription Discounts Available from NY3Rs Association

 

The New York 3Rs Association is pleased to announce another opportunity to leverage group licensing toward discounted services for libraries throughout New York. For libraries implementing or planning to implement RDA, the RDA toolkit is an essential resource for navigating from AACR2 to RDA. NY 3Rs Association is coordinating statewide purchases of the RDA Toolkit on behalf of our libraries .

ABOUT THE RDA & RDA TOOLKIT

RDA: Resource Description and Access is the new standard for resource description and access designed for the digital world. Built on the foundations established by AACR2, RDA provides a comprehensive set of guidelines and instructions on resource description and access covering all types of content and media. The content of RDA has been developed in a collaborative process led by the Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA.

RDA Toolkit is an integrated, browser-based, online product that allows users to interact with a collection of cataloging-related documents and resources including RDA: Resource Description and Access. RDA Toolkit is published by the RDA Co-Publishers.

PRICING & LICENSE TERMS

Pricing for the toolkit will be based on the number of libraries that formally agree to license the toolkit (see below). Participating libraries will receive access on June 1 (free 30-day trial) and billing will be for a July 1-June 30 fiscal year. We have provided a copy of the licensing agreement here to aid in your decision-making process. Do not complete this form now. A representative from your 3Rs Council will contact you after the registration deadline to complete your licensing agreement.

Once NY 3Rs determines how many libraries have committed to purchasing the Toolkit, your regional 3Rs Council will invoice your library for the discounted rate.

*The Solo-User subscription is for single-user environments where access to RDA Toolkit is not shared with other individuals in the same institution

**The Institutional subscription is designed for multi-user environments where one concurrent user (with the option to add additional concurrent users***) is shared with an unlimited number of individuals within the same institution.

***Annual licensing fee for 2 or more concurrent users: 2-9 concurrent users $55; 10-19 concurrent users $50; 20+ concurrent users $45. These prices would be discounted at the final discount level.
