No one used to think of it as the 'ever-changing world' of cataloging. With the explosion of new technologies to be cataloged, changing cataloging rules, and shrinking budgets, that’s no longer the case. More than ever, libraries need help keeping up. That’s where we come in.
LTI stays on top of changes in Library of Congress' 8.8 million name and 413,000 subject headings, MARC coding, and cataloging rules that affect access points and passes them along to you. We also provide authority control for NLM MeSH, LC Children's and genre headings.
But many local systems vendors have an 'authority control' module. What makes LTI's authority control different?
Each step in LTI's authority control process is designed to maximize authority record links and to eliminate incorrect links.
Consult a detailed explanation of the options that are available for authority control, then fill in a Work Specification Profile to begin the authority process with LTI.
Once your database is up to date, you want to keep it that way with LTI's continuing authority services.
