Notes

Abstract: Purpose of this paper: The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate a workflow for establishing name authority in uncontrolled collections. Design/methodology/approach: We developed a workflow incorporating command-line tools and tested it in our electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) collection. We narrowed the scope of the study to born-digital ETDs in the collection and to contributor names, including chairs and committee members. Findings: This workflow can save staff time and allows for flexible implementation depending on staff numbers and skills as well as institutional needs. Originality/Value: This workflow can save staff time and allows for flexible implementation depending on staff numbers and skills as well as institutional needs.
