Okay. Okay. So you don't want to ship your collection off in crates.
Or maybe your project just doesn't lend itself to the 'out' part of outsourcing.
Backstage offers a range of on-site library services.
From sending our project manager to meet with yours as a consultant to staffing and managing an entire conversion project at your library, our expertise is available to fit your needs.
On-site profiling is an option that allows your people to meet directly with a Backstage Library Works project manager to clarify the unique features of your project. Working together on-location, we can together create a comprehensive profile of your institution's requirements.
On-site conversion can involve an irreplaceable special collection that needs careful handling for microfilming or digitization. Or it might be relabeling an entire multi-branch library system with RFID tags, or reclassifying your holdings to Library of Congress or another classification system.
On-site card scanning is perhaps our oldest roving service. By having a Backstage technician capture images of your card catalog at the beginning of a retrospective conversion project, you ensure the safety of existing records and allow library staff continuous access to the source documents while we work off-site (backstage, as it were) to produce up-to-date MARC records from the digital image files.
