On-Demand Webinar: Taking Back “Control” of Authority Control in Alma

Written by Emily Garner on September 8, 2021. Posted in News & Events, Resources, Webinars

With the shrinking of staff and competing cataloging projects, authority maintenance can often end up on the backburner of technical service’s to-dos; sometimes to such an extent that even Alma cannot fix it. That was the situation Georgia Tech Library staff found themselves in.

During this ELUNA learns session, Georgia Tech Metadata Librarian Sarah Cruz will reflect on:

  • Their decision to partner with MARCIVE, Inc. for authority maintenance to provide consistency to their decades of undisturbed data
  • The workflows established to facilitate authority maintenance
  • The impact and benefits of outsourcing ongoing authority maintenance
  • Best practices for libraries in need of record remediation and enhancement

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear first-hand how one library added consistency to their access points, enhanced records to RDA, fixed formatting, and incorporated URIs to prepare for a linked data environment — all with minimal staff time spent.

On-Demand Webinar: Making eRecords More Findable

Written by Emily Garner on July 8, 2020. Posted in News & Events, Resources

Hello? Is it eRecords Your Patrons are Looking for?

COVID-19 caused many libraries to close for a period this spring, and while many are now re-opening, patrons are still relying heavily on eBooks and other online resources rather than browsing library shelves for physical materials. Unfortunately, many eRecords from vendors come with errors that make it difficult for patrons to find what they’re looking for and access all of the materials available.

During this on-demand webinar, MARCIVE representative Ligia Gomez, MLS and Assistant Director for Discovery Services at Wellesley College, Ray Schmidt, MLS, share how libraries across the country are improving the discoverability of eRecords, including:

  • Common problems associated with vendor eRecords
  • What fixes can be performed by an automated service
  • What eRecords a library should send for automated cleanup
