MARS™ Authority Control Service
Formerly OCLC® MARS Authority Control, Backstage's MARS™ service is one of the oldest and most reliable authority control offerings on the market. A user-friendly web interface, enhanced efficiency, accuracy, and customization allows you to manage your authority records easier than before.
Backstage offers name and subject authority control based on the Library of Congress name and subject authority databases. The authority control process standardizes name, subject, series, and uniform title headings.
