  • Single screen cataloging editor with MARC21 validation and the option to embed local cataloging guidelines; with support for MARC Authority records, MARC Bibliographic records, and MARC Holdings records.
  • New reports module with asynchronous retrieval.
  • Discovery Layer offering a cloud-based, fast and locally customized index of a library's information assets, with an easy-to-use and powerful way of accessing all of that information from a single search box.

About El Dorado Correctional Facility

The El Dorado Correctional Facility (EDCF) was established in 1991. It was built in response to a federal mandate to ease over-crowding at the state's other two maximum security prisons. Expansion in 2001 brought two new general population cellhouses. The facility is expected to expand in the future. EDCF is a maximum security prison located in Prospect Township in Butler County, Kansas east of the town of El Dorado. EDCF is home of the Kansas Department of Corrections Reception and Diagnostic Unit, or RDU, which processes every male inmate when they are received into KDOC custody. RDU helps determine the inmate's custody level, mental health classification, and educational program needs before he is sent to another facility.
