Get your library on Google

MARC records are invisible to search engines, but when you transform them to linked data, users can find your library resources with a simple web search. With your records in the search results, you can attract attention and bring users to the library—without any extra effort.

Connect with your users

Whether your users are families looking for the latest bestseller or scholars searching for special collections, you can reach them through the search engines they use every day.
