SCIS encourages publishers to send in new titles - print and digital - that are suitable for the schools market, along with the Onix data. The SCIS cataloguing team work from 'item in hand' to ensure high-quality, comprehensive metadata is created.
Benefits of sending items to SCIS:
- Exposure: Titles are visible to educators browsing the SCIS catalogue and on their MySCIS home page (see below)
- Quality: Dewey classification and educational subject headings are assigned - improving search and resource management within schools
- Efficiency: Educators can feel confident that MARC records are available on acquisition, meaning content can be put to use quickly
Approximately 8,000 schools subscribe to SCIS across the world, including 93% of Australian schools and 55% of New Zealand schools.
