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

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.
