Bibliographic Records for eContent

Bibliographic records for eContent are added to the Polaris database in three ways. 

  1. Records from Overdrive and CloudLibrary are loaded into the system automatically. Overdrive uses SIP2 and CloudLibrary uses API in order to do this.

  2. CCS staff members will load records that apply to many of the libraries in the consortium. This includes eReadIllinois (Axis360), Hoopla, and Kanopy.

  3. Other eContent that is specific to a particular library will be updated by the library. CCS staff will take care of setting up the eContent records and doing initial loads of records. Please start a help desk ticket to add new eContent.

Catalogers are welcome to edit the bibliographic records of eContent. Integrated resources will have item records. Non-integrated resources do not have item records. Check the Resources (red R) view of the bibliographic record to see library holdings and URLs.
