RDA-L list will transfer from Library Archives Canada to the American
Library Association (ALA). Below you will find the important information
needed to navigate the transfer period. 


*         The transfer will occur on December 27th. 


*         On that date the email address for RDA-L  will change to This means beginning on Dec. 27th subscribers should send
all RDA-L posts to that address. 


*         Beginning on Dec. 27th, replies to discussion threads that
started on the RDA-L@LISTSERV.LAC-BAC.GC.CA address should be redirected

transferred to the ALA hosting service.

access the full archive of RDA-L posts (from 2005 to the present) at Subscribers should use the "first
login" button when attempting to access subscription settings or the
RDA-L archive for the first time. By clicking the "first login" button
the subscriber will be able to create a password. Your email and
