Contract Cataloging™

Before ordering, let us learn more about your needs and challenges.

We’ll need to know:

  • the type and format of materials you need cataloged,
  • languages to be included in the project,
  • anticipated percentages of original and copy cataloging, and
  • the amount and type of editing and local data to be added to records.

We will then design a solution for you and determine a price. Prices are quoted on a per-item-cataloged basis.

To help us do this, please complete and submit the request for cost proposal form.

In Canada, please complete and submit the LTS Project Planning Guide.
