Abstract: LibLime Academic Koha has specific tools for authority records. With LibLime Academic Koha librarians can import MARC authority records, replace a brief or “stub” authority record with an updated record and link authority records to bibliographic records via the user interface. The workflow for managing this aspect of cataloging was designed by librarians and is user friendly and intuitive. LibLime Academic Koha features full support for summary records. Summary records can be created, edited, and deleted using specially built cataloging tools. Linking the summary record to a bibliographic or item record is also done with these tools. Summary and item records can be edited or deleted in batches as well.
