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.

The Alice Smith School
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.
SCIS works with providers of library management systems to ensure the most efficient delivery of SCIS products and services. Subject to agreement, library system vendors are offered complimentary access to SCIS products for the purposes of development, testing and demonstration.
SCIS supports university and TAFE educators in training and developing future librarians with essential cataloguing skills. Subject to agreement, lecturers of librarianship courses are offered complimentary access to SCIS for their students to use as part of their studies.
SCIS works closely with a number of publishers, distributors and suppliers. By arranging for new, high demand titles to be catalogued in the SCIS database, publishers have an additional avenue for reaching their market and customers have a consistent resource management solution.
