BookWhere at Henderson Memorial Public Library

Henderson Memorial Public Library is a member of the Independently Cooperating Ashtabula Network (ICAN) in Ashtabula County, Ohio. We have been using BookWhere now for almost 8 months, and I love it. I just love it.

When our library made the move to Koha, the open source Integrated Library System, we also decided to move away from OCLC. We then investigated other ways of doing copy cataloging, and we chose BookWhere because it was relatively inexpensive and offered the greatest selection of real-time databases and the easiest way to find the best records fast.

BookWhere is so much more extensive than OCLC. I can find the records that I need so much more quickly. Now that I’m using MARC Notepad, which we just started using, I can import my already-edited records straight into our Koha catalog – and the macros are going to make it so easy to add wanted information and to remove the tags we don’t want to have in our database.

My hit rate is easily 90 per cent from doing a batch search by ISBN. If I don’t find the records I need, I usually wait a week and then try a title search instead. Sometimes I get lucky.
