Mid-Winter ALA 2010

Hello and Welcome to the New Year! If 2010 is anything like 2009, it will be an exciting time to be a part of the authority control process. In the Automation Services Dept we are eagerly putting together some fantastic new services that will save you in time, convenience, and cost for this new year. We are anxious to let you all know about the exciting new services coming your way.

To whet your appetite, here is a brief taste of the two services we are ready to roll out:

· MAX – MARS Authority eXpress. A service with no minimum record requirements that also promises you your records within an hour of receipt?

· Bowker TOC Enrichment – Backstage has partnered back up with the Bowker service, which provides TOC & Summary enrichment at a reduced price.

To find out more information about this as well as the ongoing updates with RDA, we would like to invite you to our MARS Breakfast Meeting, to be held on Saturday, January 16th from 7:30 am to 8:30 am. This meeting will take place at the Seaport Hotel (directions inline), near the conference center and we will have an RSVP link up very soon on our website. We are hoping that this timeframe allows you to come meet with us, listen to a brief update on these services and the status of RDA and still give you enough time to make your way for the 9:00 am sessions at the conference.

Nate Cothran and Karen Anderson will be attending as well as a few others from Backstage. We can’t wait to see you all there!
