 +===== PINES Authority Control Project with Backstage Library Works =====
 +
 +
 +
 +PINES has outsourced its authority control operations to a commercial vendor, Backstage Library Works ([[http://​www.bslw.com/​]]). 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.
