TitleWise Online Collection Analysis & Assessment

TitleWise takes the guesswork out of collection development. It is the quickest, easiest, and most comprehensive online collection analysis tool available! This service is available at no charge to all Follett School Solutions customers. Within minutes of sending us your MARC record data, you’ll receive reports detailing the make-up of your collection (paying special attention to those age-sensitive Dewey ranges), comparing your collection to other grade-appropriate recommended school library collections, and detailing incomplete records. Plus, TitleWise and Follett’s Destiny Library Manager are fully integrated so you can easily update your TitleWise analysis and upload MARC records with one click.

TitleWise makes it easy to:

  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of your school and district library collections.
  • View and/or print reports, graphs, and charts that help you key in on the areas that need improvement.
  • Use Titlewave to find titles that address the needs of your school or district.

TitleCheck

  • Enables you to immediately see which titles on your TitleWave lists may be exact, possible, or title-only matches for titles that are already included in your school library collection.
  • Helps you avoid ordering unwanted duplicate titles that you may already own.
  • TitleCheck is available to all our customers who have completed a TitleWise Online Collection Analysis.

Cataloging & Processing

RDA Cataloging – When You’re Ready, We’re Ready

RDA (Resource Description and Access) is the new cataloging standard which replaced AACR2r (Anglo American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition, revised) on March 31, 2013. Follett School Solutions began cataloging using RDA cataloging standards on that date.


Accelerated Reader

With Follett’s Accelerated Reader 526 tag in the catalog record, it is easy to search for Accelerated Reader books if your library’s electronic circulation system supports the tag. This tag includes the reading program name, reading level, point value, quiz number, and holding code (if your library is a member of a union catalog).


Reading Counts

With Follett’s Reading Counts 526 tag in the catalog record, it is easy to search for Reading Counts books if your library’s electronic system supports the 526 tag. This tag includes the reading program name, reading level, point value, and holding code (if your library is a member of a union catalog). Follett’s Reading Counts cataloging also inserts the Lexile measure (if available) in a 521 tag.
