On-Demand Webinar: Making eRecords More Findable

Written by Emily Garner on July 8, 2020. Posted in News & Events, Resources

Hello? Is it eRecords Your Patrons are Looking for?

COVID-19 caused many libraries to close for a period this spring, and while many are now re-opening, patrons are still relying heavily on eBooks and other online resources rather than browsing library shelves for physical materials. Unfortunately, many eRecords from vendors come with errors that make it difficult for patrons to find what they’re looking for and access all of the materials available.

During this on-demand webinar, MARCIVE representative Ligia Gomez, MLS and Assistant Director for Discovery Services at Wellesley College, Ray Schmidt, MLS, share how libraries across the country are improving the discoverability of eRecords, including:

  • Common problems associated with vendor eRecords
  • What fixes can be performed by an automated service
  • What eRecords a library should send for automated cleanup
