The Z39.50 protocol is an International standard, which allows libraries to access catalogue records in other libraries easily. Z39.50 allows 247lib.com users to search the catalogues of major libraries anywhere in the world and to import as much of these professionally catalogued records as you want in seconds.
Major libraries supporting Z39.50 include the British Library, the Library of Congress, the National Library of Scotland, the National Library of Wales and major publishers.
Compared with manually typing up catalogues, Z39.50 provides cataloguing which is:
All catalogue records imported may be visually enhanced by reference to Amazon book covers to provide colorful catalogue images for your users to view and by reference to Google reviews. A 247lib.com catalogue record is visually engaging and presented to impress your users and encourage reading.
