RDA- Resource Description and Access- activation on OASIS

To activate the new menu items referred to in the OASIS Library Release Notes,
select I5 Enable RDA compliance in the B1 Library Management menu. Then quit the
module and select B1 again. The new menu items will be displayed.

Release Notes only referred to, (and showed screen dumps of,) B1 I1 – I4, but the B1 the menu
did not match what was illustrated in the Release Notes, i.e. there was no I1 to
I4 only an I5 (Activate RDA). Use the following;

Select I5 then exit back to the main menu.

Then go back in to B1 and I1 – I4 should be available.

To save confusion ITD then went ahead and remotely activated RDA so that anyone who had
not already done so, did not need to worry about missing step in the Release
Notes instructions.

Assume that ITD had intended to activate RDA remotely prior to making the Release Notes available, but somehow
that didn’t happen, hence the confusion.
