Resumption of Monthly Authority Notification Files

September 18, 2012

Monthly Authority Notification Service resumes

This is an important message intended for everyone involved with loading Library of Congress (LC) authority records from MARCIVE Authorities Notification Service into a library automation system. Regular monthly service resumes this week.

During most of August, Notification Service files have been distributed weekly to facilitate loading of large numbers of authorities records associated with Phase I Resource Description and Access (RDA) implementation.  We now resume monthly service.

We will also resume the usual two-week retention period for your Notification files so please remember to retrieve them by the date indicated in the email message which announces each file. You should begin seeing those messages by September 20 or 21.
