Welcome to the Backstage Library Works Automated Services Wiki. Automated services are an integral part of the library world. It allows libraries to enact positive changes to a large amount of data in a short amount of time. This wiki covers the following automated services: Authority Control, RDA Enhancement, MARCADIA, and Record Deduplication.
Authority control is a very important part of the library world, but it can also be difficult to understand, especially if you're not familiar with all of the rules and terminology.
