MARC my e-books

Published on

The challenge of cataloguing e-books raises a pile of questions starting what defines an e-book? The Schools Catalogue Information Service (SCIS) has grappled with these questions and published a new Cataloguing Standard for e-books (2010) . This presentation outlines issues in cataloguing e-books, and attempts to answer questions school library staff ask about enhancing access to e-books through a standards-based cataloguing service.
