The implementation will begin no earlier than January 1, 2013.

RDA Toolkit is happy to announce that a MARC linking service is now available. This service is free to both users and vendors. It allows for the creation of URLs using specific MARC information--field, indicator values, and subfield--to make a link to the relevent RDA instruction(s) within RDA Toolkit. Anyone can create the links, but a subscription to RDA Toolkit is required to view the content. Learn more about this service.
