The searchability of the staff and public catalogues relies on information being entered and coded correctly in the MARC records.

Evergreen has both the Enhanced MARC Editor and the Flat Text Editor which can be used when creating, importing, merging, editing, and deleting bibliographic records. Cataloguers can use either editor or both when working with records.

Before working with bibliographic records in Sitka’s Evergreen cataloguers must be familiar with Sitka’s Cataloguing Policy.
