At DataNZ, we specialise in providing comprehensive cataloguing services to libraries, archives, and manuscript repositories. Our team of experts has extensive experience in retro-converting card catalogues to MARC 21 format using an XML environment, which is a framework developed by the US Library of Congress. Our MARC 21 cataloguing services ensure that your library’s holdings are accurately and efficiently catalogued for easy access and maintenance.

In addition to MARC 21 cataloguing, we also offer card catalogue digitisation services to help you preserve your physical card catalogues while making them easily accessible online. Our digitisation services are designed to meet the specific needs of your library or archive, with options for full-text searching and OCR conversion.

We are also well-versed in Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS), a schema used for bibliographic element sets in library applications. Our team can help you convert your bibliographic data to MODS format, which is ideal for libraries and archives that require machine-readable bibliographic data.

We understand that different libraries have different needs, which is why we offer a range of services to meet your specific requirements. Whether you need help with EAD (Encoding of Archival Descriptions) or advanced metadata coding and capture software for catalogue conversions, we have the expertise to provide a customised solution for you.

At DataNZ, we use state-of-the-art tools and technologies to ensure the highest quality of service. Our team is committed to providing accurate and efficient cataloguing services that help you organise your library’s holdings and make them easily accessible to your patrons.

If you need professional cataloguing services, look no further than DataNZ. Our team of experts is ready to help you with all your bibliographic needs. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help you.

Your people doing the mark-up do a great job with pretty difficult material

Just as in previous years, this is absolutely great – thank you and your team very much! We do spot checks for our statistical purposes as we work with the data you provide, and continue to be delighted by the 100% accuracy of everything checked.

DataNZ have been very helpful in realising this major new online resource (Web-enabling the Fletcher Index of Māori names) for the Library. The service we received was excellent and we are very happy with their work.
