Abstract

Michael Rogers, IT Administrator, University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Our ILS prior to ALEPH offered no authority control. As a result, the headings were a mess! We decided a good scrubbing was in order and contracted with Marcive to “clean up” authority headings in the bibliographic database based on LC, and purchase all available authority records for those headings. The session will review how we 1) extracted 1.62 million BIB records for Marcive, 2) created, reviewed and signed off on a test set, 3) re-loaded the corrected BIB database and the new AUT records, 4) indexed xxx01 and xxx10, and 5) continue on-going database clean-up with Marcive using their Overnight Authorities service.
