PINES Authority Control Project with Backstage Library Works

PINES has outsourced its authority control operations to a commercial vendor, Backstage Library Works ( Backstage provides two services for PINES:

Authority Control Notification Service: Backstage routinely checks the Library of Congress authority files and when a record matching an existing PINES authority records is updated, replaced, or deleted, Backstage sends PINES a list of those updated headings on a monthly basis. This file is subsequently used to update PINES authority data.

Current Cataloging Service: When new bibliographic records are added to the PINES database, they are sent to Backstage, also on a monthly basis, to verify their headings against standard authority records and any new headings are added to PINES authority file.
