The draft agenda for the October 2021 RDA Steering Committee (RSC) meeting is now available. The final version of the agenda will be published just before the meeting begins, but the agenda is not expected to substantively change.

As previously announced, this will be a two-week virtual meeting (12-15 October and 18-22 October), which will use a mix of asynchronous and video meeting styles.

It is not possible to have observers at the asynchronous meetings due to software constraints. Outcomes from that portion of the meeting will be publicly reported as soon as practical.

However, the public session of the agenda will be discussed in a Zoom video call which will be open to observers. This call is scheduled for Monday 18 October 2021 at 14:00 UTC/GMT. It will be a two hour call. The RSC offers apologies to those for whom this is an inconvenient time; as an international body, the group rotates calls throughout time zones to share the burden of middle-of-the-night calls. Outcomes will be publicly reported as soon as practical.

The topics for the public session are:

  • RSC/TechnicalWG/2021/2 -- Collection Level Description
  • Guidance menu possible re-organization
  • RSC communication

Please contact the RSC Secretary, Linda Barnhart at by 7 October to register to attend the public session.

The RSC does not publish the recordings of its meetings, which are captured for the purpose of creating accurate minutes.
