e keep a record of all cataloging orders placed with MARCIVE, whether through search request forms (list of ISBNs or LCCNs), MarciveWeb SELECT (online ordering using a browser), or book distributor orders. The archive of these orders is the library’s “order history,” or MARCIVE database.

If you are about to automate, please contact a Customer Service  representative for information on how to obtain a copy of the bibliographic file we have archived for your library.  You can continue to receive new MARC cataloging customized for your automated system, as well as smart barcode labels and spine label sets.

We have worked with just about any MARC-based system you can name.  Let us help you make your new system look good.

New!  Updated version of MarciveWeb SELECT released

Customers of this super easy-to-use cataloging system will be happy to learn that we have made several changes to the look and function of MarciveWeb SELECT.  Here are a few features, below:

General

  • New version is UTF-8 compliant and can display and edit using a wider range of languages and characters.  (Previous version was ASCII only).

Better Navigation

  • A help button was removed and now context-sensitive help is integrated into the user interface in the form of hints and tool tips.  Previously, the user had to navigate away from the screen to request help, then navigate back.
  • There’s now a single screen to select basic work form options.  The edit screen has all other options available, and pre-configured user level options are already populated.  There were lots of screens to navigate for each option with the older version.
  • All function buttons now bring up “on screen” dialogs without navigating away from the page.  In the past, the user had to navigate away from the screen to complete each operation, often going through several screens.

Better look makes for easier reading

  • Current version presents user with a maximum of 500 results and a maximum of 20 per page.  In the past, the user had 1,000 results but only 10 viewed per page, and had to click through an intermediate screen to approve the display of more results.
  • The MARC tagged display in tag order supports the full UTF-8 encoding set, instead of a labeled display supporting an ASCII only encoding set.
  • The “Do Not Order” function button has been removed.  This previously took the user back to the basic search screen.  Now the user may instead return to the search results of where the search originated, or begin a new search.

Easier editing

  • Problems with incorrectly formed records are avoided, now that changing tags for non-repeatable fields is not allowed.  Also users cannot remove critical fields such as the 001 and 245.
  • Full support for special Latin characters and diacritics using specialized “keypad” displays has been implemented.  These previously had to be entered through special codes on a separate page.  Additionally, there is full support for Cyrillic, Greek and Hebrew characters.

You’ll notice more changes as well, and we hope you like what you see!  If you have questions about the new version, need help with your profile, or would like more information about MarciveWeb SELECT, please contact us at [email protected].
