Task Force on Authority Control Implementation : Gap Procedures

Record update procedures during processing

Authority control implementation requires that most of our bibliographic records be sent to LTI for processing. When the file returns earlier versions of our records are overlayed. Since changes to controlled headings while the file is at the vendor would be lost when the file is reloaded, procedures have been put into place to protect our data. Two sets of gap procedures have been developed. The first to protect data while the file is being processed at LTI and the second for the eight week reload period.
