August Release of Toolkit Publish Date Set

The Co-Publishers of RDA have set the August Release of RDA Toolkit for Tuesday, August 19th. The release will include an update of the German translation of RDA that will make the translation current through the April 2014 Update of RDA. The new translation will include all changes to RDA since the May 2013 release of the initial German translation. These changes include the rewording of RDA in 2013, the July 2013 and April 2014 RDA Updates, and all Fast Track changes through April 2014. The August release will also include the introduction of policy statements prepared by the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek. There will be no further changes to RDA or RDA Toolkit beyond those related to the German translation.

Typically releases occur on the second Tuesday of a month; however, to ensure that the roll-out of this new material happens properly, the publish date has been pushed back a week.
