Table of Contents Enrichment

T

oday’s library users are often savvy online searchers. But searching the web is different from searching your online catalog. MARC Record Enrichment adds information to MARC records that will help patrons locate the resources they’re searching for, using keywords and terminology intuitive to them.

Adding Tables of Contents to your catalog records will add a great deal of information that will help patrons locate materials and evaluate their suitability before heading to the stacks. With Table of Content Enrichment you’ll add:

  • Acronyms and terms related to business, science, medicine, technology, software, vocational training.
  • New terminology for which Library of Congress may not have developed a subject heading yet.
  • Titles of poems, short stories, and plays in anthologies, for which there are no added entries.
  • Information about the suitability of a book which can be inferred from seeing the chapter and subchapter titles in an online record.
