Cataloging for Traditional Items

Cataloging resources for traditional titles

Why should your library spend a fortune on cataloging when The Library Corporation can provide high-quality service at a fraction of the price? TLC’s powerful suite of cataloging tools for books and traditional library items connects your library to millions of MARC records from most of the same sources you already trust, including the Library of Congress, and the National Library of Canada.

TLC’s top-of-the-line yet affordable cataloging solution for traditional library titles includes three powerful resources:

  1. ITSMARC® – One of the world’s largest, most current copy cataloging resources available. With easy access methods – Z39.50 and World Wide Web – MARC records are delivered with the quickest search technology in the library industry. ITSMARC is updated daily with records from the Library of Congress, and a score of other databases are updated weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Best of all, ITSMARC is offered at one low, fixed annual price, so your library can easily budget for access to a massive pool of MARC records.
  2. BiblioFile® – TLC’s cataloging software for the desktop harnesses the vast amount of metadata available from ITSMARC and other databases. BiblioFile has a respected track record of serving libraries since 1985. Today, BiblioFile continues to offer powerful data manipulation features, local database and authority processing control, MARC record validation, label printing, book jacket views, Unicode features, and much more.
  3. Cataloger’s Reference Shelf (CRS) – A context-sensitive digital library of MARC manuals and lookup tables is included free with all TLC cataloging software products, including BiblioFile. CRS is based on two dozen electronic MARC manuals and reference works published by the Library of Congress, and has proven to be an invaluable tool for libraries by providing quick, easily accessed information about cataloging standards. The Web version of CRS is available to all users free of charge.
