The Othmer Library is a NACO library. During cataloging we found that a quite a few names in our collections don't have entries in the NAF. Creating authority records has changed with RDA creating new opportunities. These rules allow for more biographical information. This research is new to technical services however reference staff are comfortable doing this research. Bringing access services into the research phase of creating records and training staff to create RDA records improves the quality of records and reduces the workloads of staff. A balance created to allow the creation of quality records and a better opac.
