SCIS is a central cataloguing agency that creates high quality, consistent catalogue records for school libraries. Access to the SCIS database means that cataloguing effort is not duplicated across schools, improving efficiency and reducing costs. Using SCIS catalogue records also improves search and discovery in school library catalogues, making content discoverable for students and staff.
SCIS was formally established in 1984, and services approximately 92 per cent of Australian schools, 60 per cent of New Zealand schools, and users in 20 other countries across the world.
The SCIS database has over 1.5 million high quality, consistent catalogue records created for school libraries and resource centres. It includes records for print books, e-books, posters, apps, educational websites and more.
