Soutron library and information management solution

Share this on social media:

International library transformation company Soutron has announced full compliance with the cataloguing standard Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new preferred standard for library cataloguing that succeeds the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules 2nd Edition (AACR2).

An outcome of this new standard is the support for clustering bibliographic materials in order to show relationships between works and their creators and enabling the disclosure of different editions, abridgements, translations, or formats of any work.

'The flexible database framework used by Soutron provides organic support for RDA,' said Graham Beastall, managing director. 'This means that in addition to traditional library services, our transformative solution can easily be used by other information communities for information exploitation and knowledge management.'

The Soutron library and information management solution can adapt to any protocol that is required or decided upon by a special library, such as Dublin Core, due to an adaptable database structure that accommodates different cataloguing rules and styles.
