Chris Spink, Technical Services Librarian, explains their decision, “It was the best fit for us in terms of ease of use, the number of records available to us, and price. Even paying for our licenses this year, the subscription to BookWhere cost us only approximately 10% of what we paid our former cataloging utility vendor. We like that we don’t pay a charge per downloaded record. My staff was able to learn how to use it quickly, and we’re still exploring its features. And I know from previous experience that the support staff there responds when I have a question.”
The Technical Services team already has some favorite features that have improved their processes. “We especially like being able to sort records by score and rating,” describes Chris, “which helps us find the most complete records quickly without having to look at each one for a given title.” They also make use of BookWhere’s MARC editing tool, which is included in the BookWhere Suite version, to strip out unwanted MARC fields.
WebClarity is very pleased that Chris and her team have switched over to BookWhere. Welcome aboard!
