Cataloging Services from the Donohue Group Inc. - The Donohue Group, Inc. (DGI) offers a special discount for CLC member libraries on cataloging and shelf-ready processing of all formats and batches of all sizes. DGI's workflow is completely customizable, according to your local requirements. DGI has many years of experience working within local catalogs, consortia and OCLC on behalf of our library clients. DGI catalogers pay special attention to local cataloging practices, including shelflisting and uniform treatment of series. They also specialize in cataloging of materials in foreign languages, including but not limited to: Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Kiswahili and several Western European languages.
As a special incentive to CLC member libraries, DGI is offering a 5% discount off their regular cataloging rates. They welcome new customers at any time.
This service will fill the need for cataloging and/or shelf-ready processing of items received from sources that do not offer cataloging (such as online or local book stores, donors, etc.). Or, just think of those long-lingering items that keep getting pushed to the back of the cataloging queue. DGI can help!

EasyBib School Edition - CLC is pleased to offer a discount on EasyBib School Edition for K-12 school and academic library members!
EasyBib is an Information Literacy Platform that takes students through the steps of research, citations and bibliography, note taking, compilation and organizing, dynamic outlining, and writing the paper with citations, teaching literacy skills that follow the common core standards. EasyBib’s platform structure leads students through the proper steps of research and writing. For example, students using EasyBib choose to cite before they write; they know that their sources will then appear in note card drop-down boxes and in the parenthetical citation wizard. Citing first makes the whole process easier!
EasyBib School Edition grows with the student as the student’s skill level evolves.
