Description:

It’s all about access. Backstage Library Works provides professional services to cultural heritage institutions to help you create and improve paths for patrons to access your collections. Backstage services range from cataloging and non-MARC metadata to authority control and record enrichment, from digitization and microfilming to on-site inventory, reclassification, and RFID tagging. Backstage offers technology, expertise, and human resources to enable librarians and archivists like you to accomplish your goals.

Whether you have worked previously with Backstage on a digitazation project, or are considering doing so, this is your opportunity to meet the new Northeast representative from Backstage, Thomas Forsythe, and learn about Backstage's services of digitization and more!
