How do I create a new database group?

BookWhere includes thousands of database connection parameters, however, it does not come preconfigured with any database groups. Groups can be configured manually but based on feedback from our customers you can get started quickly by generating some generic groups of library databases which may meet your needs.

Not sure which Library Databases to choose?

  • To ensure a high success rate in finding suitable records we recommend searching a variety of library databases that collect similar materials and follow the same cataloguing practices as your library
  • Not sure which Library Databases to choose? We receive regular feedback from cataloguers about their favourite databases and have created some suggested groupings of libraries for various purposes
  • Ensure BookWhere is closed and run our QuickPick Groups Creator to generate some useful groups of databases to get you started. You can add and delete from these groups as you wish
  • Important Note: Any existing Database Groups will be removed from BookWhere if you run this utility!
