Data Integration, Parklawn Health Library

Developing an automated database.

We integrated 5 years’ worth of data from old files into new files and produced a 10-year cumulative index for the Parklawn Health Library during the first contract year. The database contained a complete bibliographic record of documents, technical reports, and other ephemeral and out-of-print materials acquired by this Library in conjunction with the Prince George’s County Center Branch Library.

Cygnus continued our health information management and retrieval service by developing a quarterly cumulative keyword out-of-context (KWOC) index that consisted of a listing of KWOCs with reference to the document’s accession number, a listing in accession number order with full bibliographic records, a listing of series titles, and an alphabetical listing of corporate authors and issuing agencies with full addresses for all items represented in the index.
