A new table of contents and index were recently added to the RDA Toolkit. The new book-style table of contents makes it easier for users to get a high-level overview of the structure of RDA. The index is intended to supplement the Toolkit's full-text searching capability by including terms that are not actually found in the RDA text, such as General Material Designation. The concept of the GMD does not exist in RDA, but the index contains an entry that directs users to the RDA concepts of Carrier Type, Content Type, and Media Type. Printable PDFs of both the table of contents and the index are available for offline use, and both are available free of charge. A subscription to the RDA toolkit is not required to view these new additions to the Toolkit.
