We're a relatively small operation here at Oberlin
College. All of the authority work comes to me (as both department head
and sole librarian). Two of my catalogers will create NARs and place
them in the save file. I then review and contribute these. Two other
catalogers (one position is currently vacant) will submit paperwork
(bib record and relevant information from the piece-in-hand) for me to
create and contribute the NAR. I agree with Melanie that having a
second pair of eyes looking over an authority record before
contribution is a good practice.

contributing Name Authority Records through NACO. We would like to
know whether your institution has a policy that every NAR is checked by
someone other than the cataloger who created the record before it is
contributed. If so, do you feel that this level of quality control is
justified in terms of the errors identified?
