Dear all,
I am also uncomfortable with putting so much focus on RDA Europe for the
official RDA displays. RDA is already perceived as having a too-strong
focus on Europe, and these reinforce that perception.
If these were meant as regular posters for the poster session, I’d feel
more comfortable.
In any case, even for “regular” poster session posters, I think it needs to
be much clearer that these are RDA Europe initiatives and not RDA
initiatives.
For example, the nodes poster has “RDA Europe Nodes” as its title, but the
subheadings only talk about “RDA nodes”, “national nodes”, and “RDA
national nodes”.
There is no mention that only European institutions are eligible – in fact,
the “Become a new node” bit in the blue box does not mention this at all,
which I find misleading.
Just my 2 c…
Cheers,
Stefanie
