Liberty Library Management System Integrates with Nielsen Bookdata
Did you know that Softlink Information Centre’s Liberty LMS, integrates with Nielsen Bookdata(NBD). The feature enables you to make use of NBDs comprehensive bibliographic data and cover images. If you have a subscription to NBD, have you set it up in Liberty yet?
If your library has a subscription to NBD, ensure you set it up as a Z-Cataloguing source. That is done in the same way as any other database you use to search for and retrieve records.
Tip: If you are unsure of how to add a source, check out the How to a Z-Cataloguing Sourceguide in the Help interface.
Authorised cataloguing staff can select NBD as the source to search for and import the enriched bibliographic records required. You can import them individually or in bulk.
If you import NBD’s enriched data, the cover images will display against the corresponding resource title in the results list in your Liberty search interface.
