December 21, 2011 -- Emeryville, CA. The Donohue Group Incorporated (DGI) and SkyRiver announce a collaboration whereby DGI will contribute full and in-process MARC records to the SkyRiver database.
DGI's clients include several publishers of nonprint and electronic content such as Playaway, Recorded Books, and AudioGo. These publishers have negotiated with SkyRiver to permit DGI to contribute full MARC records for their titles. "As library acquisition of electronic materials grows, DGI's contribution of these records is a valuable new enhancement to the SkyRiver database," says Georgia Fujikawa, SkyRiver's VP for Operations. In addition, DGI will be contributing PCIP (Publisher's Cataloging-In-Publication) records for hundreds of their small and independent press clients.
DGI's Manager for Business Development, Pat McCurdy-Crescimanno, notes, "We at DGI encourage sharing of records for the benefit of libraries and, since SkyRiver has a growing presence in the library community, we're pleased to be able to expand the publishers' audience in this way."
