MARCIVE, Inc.. MARCIVE now has more than 20 subscribers to Comprehensive Notification Service. In February 2017, MARCIVE released a new product that helps libraries keep a better handle on how authorities processing is performed in their ILS or LSP. Over the years, customers had commented how once an initial backfile authorities processing project was completed and Standard Notification Service was begun, their systems didn’t always do a good job using the monthly updated authority records to revise the associated bibliographic records. It was difficult to pinpoint why and in what cases an access point would not be updated, even though the proper information was present in the revised authority record. [Full Announcement].
