The RDA Secretariat has heard from a number of different parts of the organization that, with more groups being endorsed every day, it is getting harder and harder to keep up with what is happening in RDA. This means that groups don’t always know who they should be connecting with across the organization, there is increasing risk of duplicate effort across groups, and newcomers are struggling to figure out where to jump in.
Based on suggestions from the RDA Community Coordination activity at Plenary 9, the RDA Secretariat would like to collect examples of tools and activities that you have seen work well in Plenary breakout sessions, either at Plenary 9, or in earlier Plenaries. We are interested in hearing about things such as:
