SCIS services are important in ensuring efficiency and quality in our cataloguing processes. SCIS provides an authority set that is school-catalogue appropriate and meets our curricula needs. The Dewey classification is thorough and systematic. I unreservedly recommend SCIS to library professionals.

SCIS has always provided excellent customer service. The SCIS database is user-friendly and gives access to thousands of catalogued resources. We use Follett Destiny - uploading SCIS Marc data is easy! The SCIS catalogue is helpful to browse and curate lists of new resources to add to our library collection.

SCIS is an essential pillar within the school library community. Through the provision of accurate and comprehensive catalogue records, as well as their strong role in advocacy and professional learning, SCIS plays an active and vital role. I recommend their high-quality and timely services to any school library.
