Candy Riley, Manager of Metadata Services, received her MLIS from San Jose State University in 2012.  Since she started at MARCIVE in 2011, she has been instrumental in expanding the company’s NACO involvement and currently heads up MARCIVE’s NACO participant section.  She has coordinated several large in-house cataloging and authorities projects, providing guidance for staff with complex cataloging questions.  She creates training materials and instructs staff on NACO procedures and emerging cataloging guidelines.  In addition, she works closely with the development team at MARCIVE to improve current processing and institute new programming as needed as well as any custom programming a library requires.

Candy is a member of the American Library Association and ALA’s Core division.  She has been on several ALA and PCC committees, most recently as chair of the ALA Core Subject Analysis Committee.  She keeps up-to-date as standards and best practices develop and is active on a number of discussion lists such as PCCLIST, AUTOCAT, RDA-L, OCLC-CAT, MLA-L and MOUG-L.
