Good morning and welcome to you All.

We are delighted that the annual conference of the European RDA Interest Group is meeting here this year, today in Florence and tomorrow Fiesole, and we would like to thank the Executive Committee for arranging this venue, and all of the EURIG Members for the decision to come here for this year’s meeting.

We are very grateful to Gordon Dunsire and a special thanks to the speakers and the participants coming from overseas.

The overall guideline of the program indicates a 'political' first day giving an update on EURIG and RDA governance, a picture of the implementation experiences in Europe (the lightening talks have been arranged in chronological order of RDA implementation date), an update about the plans of RDA to adopt the IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM) conceptual model, an overview of the RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign (3R) Project, and some highlights of translation activities.

The second day is devoted on how RDA is an important precondition to take advantage of the application of the linked data model and related technology. In the morning we will have a theoretical session that address the topic from various angles, whereas in the afternoon a selection of workshops have been organised in order to have the opportunity for concrete evidence and discussion about the new environment that BIBFRAME will bring.

Again many thanks to you all for being here and please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
