Mitinet™ makes the complex job of running a library simple.
We offer MARC data software tools and services. The company, founded in the late 1980's as Information Transform, led the way in automating MARC records for libraries during the initial conversion from print-based card catalogs to digital computerized databases.
Headquartered in Verona, Wisconsin, Mitinet™ provides library solutions which are personalized and high-tech.
At Mitinet™, the focus is on cleaning up, organizing and optimizing your database and information management systems. The goal is to make your records orderly, your shelves tidy, and
your books easy to find, leaving you free to focus on the most important job of all: helping children meet their educational goals.
Screens new MARC records from any source before they are loaded into a library's database, checking for completeness and consistency.
Automatically updates and reports any problems with incoming MARC records, ensuring that critical search, circulation, curriculum and inventory

Mitinet provides one-on-one training and assistance for products, ensuring that users are properly trained in the use of software solutions.
Mitinet personnel are often asked to help potential and actual clients analyze their libraries. The aim of this analysis, in assessing current strengths
and weaknesses and determining strategies for meeting future goals, is to find a solution that best fits the clients needs and capabilities, whether or
not that is a Mitinet product.
