Shelf Ready

Time is Money. That it's a cliche doesn't make the phrase any less valid.

At Action! we understand that for libraries, this often represents itself in thinly-stretched staffing budgets. Our Shelf Ready service may allow you to better utilize your staff-hours by freeing up time that would otherwise be allotted to preparing your materials for the shelf.

We offer a range of services based on your particular needs.
We offer the following:
  • Copy Cataloging - copy records will be provided "as is" (records will be checked for accuracy and completeness) when no record is available a properly coded brief record will be supplied.
  • Original Cataloging - records will comply with current library standards (RDA and MARC21)
  • Customized MARC records - can included (but is not limited to): addtion of holdings fields (852, 949 or other), modification of subject headings or notes; addition of local call numbers (092), other constant data (049, 5XX, etc.)
  • OCLC records (a third-party agreement is required)
