TLC launches RDAExpress. The Library Corporation

eBiblioFile, a data services suite from TLC Labs, announces a new service to convert any library catalog to RDA quickly and easily called RDAExpress. RDA holds the promise for libraries to restructure data to provide a better searching experience for users and ultimately link outside the library to be more competitive in today’s digital world. The problem for libraries is that the rewards of RDA will remain unattainable considering the time it takes to learn RDA and re-catalog entire collections. RDAExpress is a new service that will accurately convert any library catalog’s records in about the same amount of time it would take to learn RDA in the first place.

Invest in your library’s future with TLC. The Library Corporation

A TLC library system is the best choice for a library looking to provide a user experience that today’s staff and patrons expect. Tomorrow’s best library system will not be Windows-based, and libraries will need ways to streamline the patron online experience and move past bulky, ill-designed staff clients designed for 10-year-old PCs. Tablets, smartphones, and the evolution to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies are making PCs and PC-based retail experiences obsolete. E-resource spending is rising fast too. Busy lifestyles have made business hours irrelevant. Libraries and their automation systems must adapt.
