Scope eKnowledge Center enhances MARC creation services
Scope eKnowledge Center has announced enhancements to its mARCat™ platform for MARC cataloging services. Scope’s service includes Original Cataloging (creation of MARC records) and Copy Cataloging (validating/updating MARC records).
mARCat creates MARC records for variant input formats, such as XML, PDF, TIFF, MS-Word document, for publication types including journals, books, monographs, standards, magazine, maps, directories, audio and video recordings etc. in multiple languages with dynamic cataloging templates based on MARC standards. The platform assists Scope’s library information professionals in creating and updating the MARC bibliographic metadata. In addition, Scope has in-house domain experts who validate subject classifications.
“Scope understands the importance of both scale and quality/consistency as the demand for more robust, customized MARC records increases,” said Tram Venkataraman, President of Scope. “Scope has invested in mARCat to position itself to support publishers and other information providers in meeting this demand cost effectively.”
Joseph Ranjan, Associate Vice President of Scope’s Data Services and Business Research division, commented, “As the availability and demand for e-content have exploded, libraries expect publishers to provide MARC records for their titles. Further, it is clear that customized, more enriched, and more granular MARC records are in demand to support discoverability. Scope, via its mARCat platform, can support this requirement.”

Each of Scope’s clients benefit from its more than two decades of experience and expertise in the information and research space, offering content development, repurposing, and enhancement services to the global information industry.
