cataloging e-resources using a knowledge base; streamline e-resource workflows

Learning Objectives

Streamline workflows while managing increased user demand for e-content, catalog e-books using the WorldCat knowledge base 



Librarians face many challenges related to managing metadata for e-book collections.  Challenges such as managing and merging records from multiple sources, customizing URLs and managing ongoing updates and deletes are not supported by traditional cataloging workflows developed for record-by-record cataloging.  New tools now help librarians save time and increase access to e-book collections.
