RIMMF Presentations and Events
Where to see RIMMF in action?
The best place, of course, is to see RIMMF working on on your own computer, by downloading the software and using it.
Sometimes we are able to visit libraries and offer free RIMMF presentations. These presentations run from 1 (minimum) to 2 (best) hours.
RIMMF was originally featured in our Rudimentary RDA workshop.
There is alot more information about the 'X-Athons' here: http://rballs.info/xathons/
This the place to go for uptodate and comprehensive information.
You can also find out more simply by googling 'rimmf'–its a surprisingly unique search term!
