Notes

Abstract: Name authority serves as an essential component to usability by creating a structure for successful search and retrieval. As the number of digital objects added to institutional repositories increases, so do the number of names that must be managed in a name authority system. The UNT Libraries' Digital Projects Unit created the UNT Name App, a tool for organizing and communicating authorized versions of names and related information in order to enhance consistency in our digital collections. The UNT Name App was first launched in the spring of 2013 and implementation began with the UNT Scholarly Works institutional repository. The process involved populating the UNT Name App, establishing authorized versions, and editing records for UNT Scholarly Works to create consistency. This presentation discusses the importance of name authority, how the UNT Name App tool addresses challenges with name authority, the migration and implementation process, and implications for future use.
