As we add more and more links to outside resources to RDA Toolkit (for example the links we are adding to the AACR2 display, see RDA-125), users would like to be able to turn off links that are not of interest in order to unclutter the display.
Once translations of RDA are introduced to RDA Toolkit, users will be able to switch from one language to another. For Institutional subscribers who are not English language institutions, there is a need to set the default to their language of choice without requiring individual users to log into their profiles in order to access the their preferred language.
It is important for users to know if, when, and how an instruction has changed. There should be a revision history function that allows users to access the information regarding how an instruction has changed and when it was changed.
Users have a range of preferences regarding the display of RDA instruction examples. Some may prefer that the examples are always displayed (the default), while others may prefer that the examples always be hidden. Some might prefer a truncated view of the examples.
Institutions would like to create and maintain their own set of default preferences that apply to profiles created under their account.
Users need a way to link deeply into RDA at the instruction and paragraph level (optional, exception, alternative etc.) without using the instruction number. Using an ID that is independent of an instruction number will allow users to create a permanent link so that if an instruction changes its number and placement in the sort order due to an update, the link will resolve to the new location.
Current users that are part of an institutional subscription and are not IP authenticated must do a double login. In order to gain full access to RDA Toolkit they must log in using their institutional user name and password and then log in again using their profile name and password. This issue does not apply to Solo-user subscriptions.
