SJVLS Releases RFP For Original Cataloging

This morning SJVLS released a Request for Proposals for Original Cataloging Services for our member libraries. SJVLS is seeking bids from vendors or consultants to provide original cataloging records on an as-needed basis for our member libraries as we prepare to change how we manage bibliographic record creation in the upcoming fiscal year that begins on July 1, 2024. The selected respondent will be responsible for creating original bibliographic record(s), uploading them to OCLC on the member’s behalf, and providing an electronic copy of the record(s) to load into our ILS. Bibliographic records will be created following MARC and RDA rules, as outlined in the Scope of Work.
