The aim of the sessions is to help participants new to RDA to understand a bit about how RDA works, assist them in navigating the Plenary, and provide an opportunity for networking. At these sessions, you typically hear from the Secretary General, the Secretariat, RDA Working and Interest Group chairs, and members of the RDA governance bodies, and are warmly invited to ask questions and interact with other RDA members. Please note that you did not have to attend VP17 to join the sessions.
You can find slides from one of the RDA for Newcomers sessions prior to RDA VP16 here.
La RDA pour les Nouveaux Venus (RDA for Newcomers in French)
Early Career and Engagement Interest Group - The purpose of the Early Career and Engagement Interest Group (ECEIG) is to provide a focal point for Early and Mid-Career Researchers and Professionals (yes, students are welcome, too!) They have a volunteer mentoring programme and many other great efforts.
