#w1d: Scaling Authority Control: Issues (and Solutions) for Authorities at the Local, Regional, and National Level

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As more libraries migrate to Linked Data, authority control becomes paramount. Authority control, or establishing and maintaining consistent descriptions of concepts, ensures resources are described accurately, and descriptions are repurposed. This panel discusses authorities work at University of Utah, University of Denver, Cornell University, and Digital Public Library of America.
