TLC releases LS2 Cataloging for Library•Solution
The Library Corporation is excited to announce the summer release of LS2 Cataloging for the Library•Solution ILS platform. TLC’s LS2 Cataloging for Library•Solution delivers robust yet intuitive web-based tools that simplify cataloging for everyone from seasoned collections technicians to first-year library assistants using a fully responsive design. “LS2 Cataloging is a positive step forward for everyone involved. Thanks for creating a new module that’s ahead of the curve!” Ruth Hayden, Smyrna Public Library, Ga.
With content provided by the Library of Congress as well as other authoritative sources, and curated by TLC, LS2 Cataloging provides full authority-controlled terms and other glossaries in real time so users see which authorities in a record are unmatched before editing even begins. LS2 Cataloging also introduces the Purify Process, which makes structural corrections and enriches selected metadata in the bibliographic record before it enters your system. In addition, the bibliographic records are put through RDA conversion – ensuring the records are RDA compliant – which expands the search facets and improves discovery.
LS2 Cataloging also includes draft-state editing – giving catalogers the flexibility to follow several possible workflows that allow for research or teamwork for some titles instead of the single title search-edit-save/publish workflow. An Activity Feed feature shows all cataloging related activity in real time while the customizable permission structure makes sure a record isn’t being published before it is ready. Stacy Lickteig, Project Coordinator, Library Services for Omaha Public Schools loves how intuitive LS2 Cat is, “One of the best features of LS2 Cataloging is that I don’t have to remember the different indicators or the correct punctuation for each field. I can focus on the big picture of finding the correct record and let LS2 Cataloging take care of those other details that can quickly consume time when cataloging is not your sole job duty.”
LS2 Cataloging is fully integrated with Library•Solution and Library•Solution for Schools. For current customers, this module is available as an upgrade. For new customers, LS2 Cataloging will be part of the ILS from day one. LS2 Cataloging also has an integrated record source provided by our ITS•MARC title record service as an available add-on (if you don’t already subscribe to ITS•MARC).
