Records for Electronic Databases in the Online Catalog at Middle Tennessee State University
Geckle, Beverly J.; Pozzebon, Mary Ellen; Williams, Jo
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v20 n4 p243-255 2008
This article recounts a project at the Middle Tennessee State University library to include records for electronic databases in the online catalog. Although electronic databases are accessible via the library's Databases A-Z list and related subject guides, cataloging these resources also provides access via the online catalog, allowing more of the library's resources to be accessible in one place. The project is a collaborative effort between the User Services and Collection Management departments, where there is shared responsibility for the acquisition, service, and maintenance of electronic databases. The benefits of cataloging electronic databases are discussed as well as workflow and processing issues. (Contains 1 figure.)
