Card image catalogue

Additional module

The catalogue cards are scanned in and subsequently read by the OCR program so that a line of text is created for each catalogue card.

Catalogue cards are made in LIBERO from the OCR data, which appear as shown here for example:

LIBERO v6 Card Image Catalogue

(From this mask the catalogue record can, through processing, either be edited to suit needs or simply updated with data from a union catalogue.)

The OCR text is also saved in field 331 so that it is visible on the stock maintenance screen ...

LIBERO v6 Card Image Catalogue

... as well as in field 750 (annotations), so that it can be seen in the notes above the image display.

LIBERO v6 Card Image Catalogue

In the catalogue records the catalogue card is displayed, as well as the relevant image, so that it is visible with the OCR text when accessing the image function.

Using the arrow keys the catalogue can be browsed in steps of one page or ten pages, forwards or backwards.

The librarian (or a library member) can now begin a search of the catalogue with any word (in our example with KIRCH):

LIBERO v6 Card Image Catalogue

By clicking on a title, the text in field 331 becomes visible in the yellow card-display.

An item becomes visible with the note {see the image catalogue for further information}, so that the user is aware that a scanned-in image is available.

Even a search via the call number (here K37 1B4) is possible (in the "Any word" index) if this has been correctly recognised by the OCR programme.

In the title display in WebOPAC, the user’s attention is drawn to the attached image through the icon alongside the catalogue record. The image can also be displayed.
