Two more questions about the forthcoming transfer of RDA-L:
1. Will the URLs for mails in the present archive still be working?
For example, will
still retrieve your announcement of 18 December? I've sometimes included
such links in discussions with German colleagues or in our wiki, and it
would be rather inconvenient if these links wouldn't work any longer.
2. Do I understand correctly that the new archive will only be open to
I know that some people cannot find the time to follow all of our
discussion and therefore do not want to subscribe, but are happy to read
up selected threads in the archive.
This post follows up on the announcement last week that hosting of the
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 27^th .
·On that date the email address for RDA-L will change to

27^th subscribers should send all RDA-L posts to that address.

the ALA hosting service.
·Subscribers will be able to manage their subscriptions and access the
full archive of RDA-L posts (from 2005 to the present) at
http://lists.ala.org/sympa/info/rda-l. 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"
