MARC Record Enrichment TOC, Fiction/Biography, Summaries to aid retrieval and determine relevancy Janifer Meldrum What is MARC Record Enrichment? • Adding data to your existing cataloging records: – Table of Contents – Fiction Biography added entries – Summaries – Author notes • You own the data. It’s not a subscription. Save money • No money for new books? Better retrieval for titles you already own. • Can’t lose the data when you run out of money. You own it. Save time • Add Tables of Contents (TOC) and summaries automatically. Saves cataloger time. • Add during other processing (authorities, conversion). Saves systems staff time. Improve access: TOC • When the title and subject of the book is Gravitational waves, it won’t be found by someone searching • Chirping binary systems • Mass-quadrupole radiation • But those are subchapter titles—and will retrieve the book! • Aids retrieval and determination of relevance. Improve access: Fiction and Biography • Fiction is easier to find when you add: – Genre and sub-genre (culinary mystery) – Characters and their attributes (Warshawski, V. I. "Vic" Female Polish American Divorced Ex- lawyer Tough Private investigator) • Biographies can now be retrieved by personal information: – Ethnic background – Birthplace and current residence – Profession How it works • Get a quote. • Fill out a profile. • Send your database. Or have it done during authorities processing, conversion or other processing. • We add the data to your records. • You reload the enriched records.
