Cataloging Transformed

TLC’s LS2 Cataloging for LibrarySolution delivers robust yet intuitive Web-based tools that simplify cataloging for everyone from seasoned collections technicians to first-year library assistants. With content provided by the Library of Congress and curated by TLC, LS2 Cataloging provides full authority-controlled terms and other glossaries in real time so you’ll see what authorities in a record are unmatched before editing even begins!

LS2 Cataloging also introduces the Purify Process, which structurally cleans and enriches MARC records before they enter your system, ensuring they’re fully RDA compliant.
