SCIS and Security

Schools are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure that when they download catalogue records from SCIS, the records are used only in their school. Curriculum Corporation recently initiated audit processes which provided us with information about SCIS users and usage patterns. These processes provided not only details about the number of catalogue records downloaded by each customer but also lists of the exact records taken. Analysis of this information will be extremely useful in our constant endeavour to maintain and improve the service we provide. Coincidentally, it will enable us to identify any instances where there could be a breach of the licensing agreement. We are currently involved in an investigation to ascertain if copyright has been breached in a particular case. Hopefully, there is a simple explanation of apparent over-use, and further action will not be necessary.

SCIS Subiect Headings

SCIS cataloguing staff are continuing to update the subject headings list in preparation for publication of the fourth edition of sets Subject Headings and other related products. We will keep you informed and immediately notify you of the availability and cost as soon as possible.
