- My library collection has gone "digital" in the last several years. I want to add MARC catalog records to my OPAC. What is the easiest way to accomplish that?
- Contact Cassidy Cataloguing about their MARC record sets for Electronic Resources from providers such as W.S. Hein, Thomson Reuters, LexisNexis, and Wolters Kluwer.
- How can I turn a “room full of books” into a working library?
- Cassidy will transform your collection of books into a library by cataloging (or re-cataloging) the collection according to national bibliographic standards and provide MARC records for your online catalog, as well as new labels and/or circulation cards—whatever you need to make the collection operational.
- I want to make my library collection available to PCs using the Internet, but I have not located a reasonably priced product.
- Let Cassidy host your OPAC with our very own product, CassidyCat5.0. Your records will be safe on one of Cassidy's many secure servers. Cassidy technical support is unsurpassed—no software to buy and no MIS support required.
- I am thinking of migrating from my present OPAC to a more sophisticated product which will give me more capabilities and better report generation. But my current records are not in one uniform format!
- Cassidy Cataloguing offers data manipulation services, including NON-MARC to MARC conversions, so all of your records can be migrated or upgraded to the system of your choice.
- My library participates in a 15 member consortium of similar academic libraries. Despite our best efforts, we are still unable to accurately pinpoint each other's serial holdings.
- Allow us to make this age-old ILL problem disappear! Cassidy has the experience and expertise to create and maintain union lists for all types of library consortia. These union lists come in print and online versions (maintained at Cassidy's website).
