Database Cleanup & Enrichment Services

So many records. So little time.

Database Services

Take thousands of catalog records, perhaps even a million or two. Let a few generations of your staff edit them. Pull your copy cataloging from someone else's database for a few years. Watch as cataloging practices change.

Now acquire somebody else's collection. Create a consortium with a shared catalog. Implement a new discovery layer. Or maybe switch ILS providers.

Is your database getting a little unruly? Wouldn't it be nice if somebody could clean it up?

At Backstage we've developed flexible systems to validate, deduplicate, consolidate, and update your data. Our database services include:

  • Deduplication & Consolidation
  • Union Database Creation
  • ILS Data Migration

  • Reclassification
  • Tables of Contents
