Public and academic libraries around the world can now integrate MARC data from BDS with bibliotheca’s cloudLibrary™.
The new partnership means that when libraries select titles from the cloudLibrary, BDS will automatically be notified and will deliver the full MARC records directly to the library. This creates a seamless experience for the library and saves time for busy staff.
“We ensure that libraries have consistent, premier quality records for all digital publications,” said Sarah Armitage, Director of Library Sales at BDS. “We look forward to supplying our high-quality digital records, many of which are hand crafted by our team of cataloguers and data experts, to mutual bibliotheca cloudLibrary and BDS customers. Libraries who hold a Public Library Licence will be able to access this new service at no extra charge.”
Dedicated to the development of solutions that help sustain and grow libraries around the world, bibliotheca’s digital cloudLibrary platform features content from over one thousand publishers and is available through almost three thousand libraries.
“We pride ourselves on partnering with top library vendors around the world to ensure the that the cloudLibrary experience is seamless and enjoyable,” said Tom Mercer, Director of Digital Products at bibliotheca. “Our new partnership with BDS brings libraries another option to integrate MARC data into our system, ensuring library users receive quality information related to digital titles, enhancing the overall experience.”
