How to get and set up the RDA Toolkit with Connexion client

Applies to
  • Connexion client
  1. The access for RDA Toolkit has to come from RDA. They can be reached at their website.
  2. Once you get a login and password from RDA, you can then set up Connexion client to use RDA tools when cataloging your records.
  3. To set this up in Connexion client, go to: Tools > Options > RDA. Here you can set up how the RDA Toolkit interfaces with Connexion client and where you put in the username and password. Ensure that Use IP Authentication is not selected; this will override any credentials that you enter.
  4. Now when you go to the Tools drop-down again in Connexion Client you should see the RDA Toolkit live and accessible at the bottom of the list. 

Please note that this integration is not possible with a Cataloger's Desktop subscription that adjacently allows access to RDA Toolkit.
