SUNCAT introductory webinar

We ran a very successful introductory SUNCAT webinar at the end of April covering:

  • Scope and content of the service
  • Key features of the interface
  • How SUNCAT can support information professionals and end-users
  • How to contribute to SUNCAT
  • Future plans for the service

The event proved popular with around 90 participants from a wide range of UK Higher Education, Government, NHS and specialist research institutions. Almost all of the participants, 87%, reported that they had found the session useful and 60% indicated that they would be interested in future, more focused, SUNCAT seminars on either improving serials metadata or collection management.

Questions covered bibliographic issues such as the inclusion of different ISSNs and non-standard subject headings and if SUNCAT is RDA compliant, to system issues, such as how records are added to the catalogue and how often records are updated.

More details about the webinar including the slides, Q&A and a recording of the session are available at http://www.suncat.ac.uk/news/presentations.html
