Status: LC ILS (Integrated Library System)
In March, 2002 the LC upgraded the ILS to Voyager 2000.1.3. On
July 1, 2002 LC implemented Library of Congress Authorities, making LC authority records available
via the Web at this address: authorities.loc.gov. The Library continues to work with our ILS vendor, Endeavor Information
Systems, Inc., to improve system performance. LC expects to expand
the number of simultaneous external users by the end of 2003.
The LC ILS primary database (LC Database) resides on a Sun E10000
server and includes 13 million bibliographic records, approximately
13 million holdings records, over 14 million item records, approximately
5.8 million authority records, data for circulation and acquisitions
transactions, over 30,000
vendor records, ledgers, funds, tables, and keyword and other searchable
indexes. In addition to the LC Database, the Handbook of Latin
Studies (HLAS) is accessible from the LC Online Catalog. The Library
of Congress Online Catalog is available at: catalog.loc.gov.
The Library of Congress
Online Catalog or LC Online Catalog presents to users data from
the LC Database for all formats with associated holdings and item
records, as well as references and scope notes from authority records.
