PROVO, Utah, July 22, 2015 –– The American Theological Library Association (ATLA) and Backstage Library Works (www.bslw.com) have combined forces to provide ATLA member libraries a special discount on Backstage services. These services may include the following: cataloging, authority control, database processing, digitization, microfilm creation, duplication and storage, reclassification, retrospective conversion, physical processing and RFID tagging.
Backstage’s dedication to providing exceptional customer service along with customized, high-quality services is a good match for ATLA. The new agreement will help member libraries to continue to make their collections more accessible to patrons, and in some cases move forward with projects that have been languishing due to budgetary constraints.
Jeff Calcagno, vice president of sales and customer support for Backstage states:
“Backstage Library Works is very pleased to be partnering with ATLA to deliver critical library services to their members. As the demand for improved access to special collections continues to grow, providing high-quality services to such a prestigious group of libraries is a natural fit for us. We will work hard to meet ATLA members’ expectations at every turn.”
ATLA member libraries may contact Backstage directly and mention their ATLA affiliation to receive the discount. Members can visit www.bslw.com/partners/atla, call 1.800.288.1265, or email email@example.com to connect with a Backstage representative in their area.
Gillian Harrison Cain, director of member programs for the American Theological Library Association relays:
“It is important for libraries to have access to streamlined solutions from vendors with a strong reputation for providing high-quality services and excellent customer service. Backstage is known in the library community for delivering in both of these areas. We look forward to the benefits our member libraries will see as a result of working with Backstage.”
Established in 1946, the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) is a professional association of individual, institutional, and affiliate members providing programs, products, and services for theological and religious studies libraries and librarians.
