Authority Control

For SHAREit, VERSO, and RESEARCHit

Authority Control within SHAREit, VERSO, and RESEARCHit helps you ensure consistency of headings in bibliographic records by validating the headings against authority records to obtain the authoritative, or preferred, headings as well as the “see” and “see also” references for personal, corporate and meeting names; uniform titles; series titles and subject headings. Authority records also provide cross-references for related and incorrect forms of headings.

Records processed through Authority Control can be downloaded for import into a local cataloging system, or can be opened for additional editing using the optional AGCat editor.
