MARC21 Records Available for Holdings on CCH Research NetWork

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., July 10, 2008) – Subscribers to the CCH Internet Research NetWork™ and CCH Tax Research NetWork™ can now obtain top-quality MARC21 records (MAchine Readable Cataloguing records) for their library holdings, thanks to a partnership between Wolters Kluwer Law & Business and Cassidy Cataloguing Services. Wolters Kluwer Law & Business is a leading provider of research products and software solutions in key specialty areas for legal and business professionals.

The MARC21 records format is the standard for storage and portability of library (bibliographical) data introduced by the Library of Congress in 1968. The makers of Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) software write their products to load data in MARC21 format. In the case of electronic publications, the MARC21 record includes an embedded link to take users directly from their online search to the online resource in one click. 

“Our goal in this partnership is to provide our customers, particularly academic institutions and other law libraries, with a reliable and accurate source of MARC21 records,” said Linda Dunton, Director of Market Segment Management for the Wolters Kluwer Law & Business Legal Professional Group.

“The Cassidy staff is especially excited to be working with the Wolters Kluwer Law & Business staff on the CCH Research NetWork project. We believe these MARC21 records will not just serve as an inventory of the library’s holdings, but will also help researchers to identify more quickly and efficiently the resources that complement each other and represent the full measure of available information on their topic,” said Joni Cassidy, President of Cassidy Cataloguing.
