MARCIVE’s Authorities Processing and RDA Conversion Services Are Distinguished as Platinum by the 2021 Modern Library Awards

January 14, 2021 (San Antonio, TX)— MARCIVE, a trusted provider of MARC bibliographic services, is pleased to announce that two of their innovative services have received the platinum distinction in LibraryWorks’ seventh annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs). Each year, the MLAs recognize the top products and services in the library industry through a peer-reviewed judging process. Librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries who have experience using the products/services in their facilities are permitted to judge.

MARCIVE’s Authorities Processing and RDA Conversion services received a score of 9.1275 out of 10. Judges rated these services based on their quality, functionality, value, customer service experience, and overall satisfaction. As part of their submission, one judge commented, “Really excellent customer service, fast responses, and willing to answer all sorts of questions.”

“We are honored to have received such high marks and praise from the librarians we serve,” said MARCIVE’s president, Robert Fleming. “We have always been at the forefront of the development of ways to improve metadata and streamline the cataloging process for libraries.”

Authorities processing is at the heart of MARCIVE’s comprehensive cataloging services. For 40 years librarians have turned to MARCIVE’s expert team to standardize bibliographic records and correct problems that can affect display and indexing. Since 2013, MARCIVE has been helping libraries with the transition to Resource Description and Access (RDA) and has performed more than 100 conversions for academic, public, school, law, and special libraries of all sizes, with various systems, and different characteristics.
