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. If you are using Connexion version 2.63, please ensure that Use IP Authentication is not selected; this will override any credentials that you enter. The Use IP Authentication option is not present in version 3.1.
  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.
