Metadata Services

Backstage has been providing bibliographic metadata services to libraries and publishers all over the world for more than 25 years. We can retrospectively convert existing data into current MARC formats with up-to-date cataloging rules. We can also work from physical materials or digital surrogates to create your catalog records in any format and any language.

Over the years, we've refined our procedures and developed proprietary technologies to streamline complex operations without removing the human touch. Our services combine the best elements of automation and hands-on expertise to provide cost-effective solutions that you'll find nowhere else.

Our goal is to perform your metadata project the way your staff would do it, if you had the time. Every library's collections and requirements are different. At Backstage, we tailor our processes to provide the exact service you need.
