What makes BestMARC great?

The best records...

  • The most complete collection of  print, AV, professional and e-materials records in the business, constantly updated and maintained.
  • Automatically include the latest reading program and Lexile levels, making it easy to find materials appropriate for any student.
  • Content-rich, with enhanced subject fields, enhanced relator terms and genre listings, and our Kid-Friendly™ subject headings, unique to Mitinet, incorporating the terms kids really use when they're searching for a book.

The best results...

  • Can't find a record? We'll help you find it with 1 mouse click. Our Smart Filter search with zmod technology, finds the top quality records based on your search criteria. With every search BestMARC gets better as we add verified rare records to our database.
  • "Match" and "Quality" scores each record, so you know how close your search results meet your criteria. The more criteria - the better the match.
  • Subject Explorer let's you search for additional Sears, LOC or LCAC subject headings by Dewey number, LC classification number or subject term and add them to your record. Nobody else in the industry offers this feature.
  • Built-in link to RDA Toolkit, makes verifying RDA fields easy for RDA Toolkit subscribers.
  • As a current subscriber, it's easy to edit or enhance records, and then download and import them into your library's database.
  • Current subscribers automatically have access to new features, with no messy software updates or delays.
