The LIBRIS Division at the National Library of Sweden (KB) provides a general model for Book suppliers that want to adjust their acquisition services to a work flow connected to LIBRIS. Book suppliers that are signing an agreement with KB and develop support for the service can offer their custom libraries automatic management of metadata in connection with ordering of books and other media.
When a library orders/buys a book, the book supplier can deliver metadata (bibliographic record with attached holdings record) to LIBRIS where it is received, matched on ISBN and loaded into the LIBRIS database. The metadata will be transferred to the ordering libraries’ local system via LIBRIS’ ordinary exchange routines the day after it has been delivered to LIBRIS. The loading into LIBRIS is also followed up by an automatic e-mail message to the ordering library.
For more information on how you as a book supplier can adjust your acquisition service to the LIBRIS work flow, se Agreement and Technical Specification to the right or contact LIBRIS Customer Support.
