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} Hello? Is it eRecords Your Patrons are Looking for?: Making eRecords more Findable

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

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.

Watch this on-demand webinar with MARCIVE representative Ligia Gomez, MLS and Assistant Director for Discovery Services at Wellesley College, Ray Schmidt, MLS, to learn how libraries across the country are improving the discoverability of eRecords.

Ligia and Ray share:

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

Your library’s resources are needed now more than ever, even if patrons aren’t coming into the library. Whether it’s parents and educators searching for eBooks at just the right reading level; someone searching for medical information; or patrons looking for digital books, music and movies to fill their leisure time at home, join this webinar for strategies to ensure everyone can find just what they’re looking for in your collection. Watch now.
