Collection Storage & Management
Catalogs contain vital information but, over time, run the risk of becoming daunting and inefficient. The bigger a catalog becomes, the harder it is to maintain – but Infotrieve can help.
Our comprehensive cataloging and metadata services offer strategies to enhance, optimize and maintain your catalog. We start by reviewing your catalog, evaluating existing records, identifying inconsistencies in cataloging practices and noting skill sets for staff maintaining the catalog. After a thorough catalog and library practices review, a detailed report is provided suggesting best practices to improve efficiencies and reduce inconsistencies.
Our experts also can assume maintenance responsibilities for your catalog, either on-site or remotely, ensuring it is clean, updated and accurate on an ongoing basis. Infotrieve’s cataloging staff members are proficient in various integrated library systems, metadata and classification schemas, as well as support tools such as Classification Web, Cataloger’s Desktop and OCLC Connexion.
Infotrieve also can manage your print collection, including storage, technology, personnel and maintenance. Infotrieve’s STM Library™ takes the hassle and expense out of managing your own physical print collections.
With more than 20 years of experience managing information centers, the right people and the most efficient workflows, keeping your collection in Infotrieve’s STM Library™ can greatly reduce costs while improving turnaround time and document quality. Using the highest quality color scanners, we can deliver documents from your collection that are crisper than ever.
The STM Library™ contains more than 1 million volumes composed of Infotrieve’s print collection, as well as our clients’ collections. The on-site staff members have decades of experience in collection management, and they will get your documents to you exactly how you want them, when you need them.
If your company maintains a collection of more than 2,500 title-years of content and fills more than 5,000 document delivery transactions annually (internally and externally), then the STM Library™ may be the perfect solution.
