Hi Ann,


At the moment, Authority Toolkit is only implemented here at HL for those who contribute authority records to the NAF through the NACO program via OCLC.  The software has another version that could be used independently of NACO and OCLC, and I think Michelle is interested in that, but we need more experience with the program first and we need the bandwidth (someone to set it up, test, administer, etc.).  So, it may be an option down the road a bit.

Sorry about my ignorance, but alas, I've never heard of the Authority Toolkit. I would love to use it. How can I get hold of it?

One of the outcomes from the PCC Operations Committee Meeting in May 2016 was to gather information on use of the Authority Toolkit among PCC member institutions to determine the level of interest in setting up a listserv and/or a user group to support Authority Toolkit users.

PCC members are invited to take the survey posted: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BSYBPQ9

The survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and the results will only be used for the purposes mentioned in the first paragraph above. Thank you for your help in providing this information.

For additional background, please see: Authority toolkit: create and modify authority records

The survey ends August 26, 2016.
