Fastcase Teams with Cassidy Cataloguing to Provide MARC Records for Titles Offered by Full Court Press Imprint

Improving Search Options for Law Libraries and Library Organizations with Fully Searchable MARC Records

Washington, DC (December 6, 2022) –  Full Court Press, the publishing arm of Fastcase, today announced it is providing MARC catalog records through a partnership with Cassidy Cataloguing Services. The partnership is ongoing and the libraries that subscribe to Cassidy will receive ongoing MARC record updates.

To date, Cassidy has catalogued titles available in Fastcase from Full Court Press, the American Bar Association, North Carolina Bar Association, Virginia CLE, and others.

MARC (machine-readable cataloging) standards are a set of computerized digital formats for the description of items catalogued by libraries, allowing bibliographic information to be shared freely between systems. Cassidy has been producing MARC catalog records for publishers, law firm and law school libraries, state and county libraries, and library organizations since 1985.

Cassidy creates records that include helpful metadata information for different legal publishers’ catalogs, for use in library systems and so libraries can know what content is available as it is published. Records are fully searchable and contain: tables of contents, notes, Library of Congress subject headings, series information, and more.

“We are excited to reveal that we now offer high-quality MARC records for all of our titles through the ABA, North Carolina Bar Association, and many in-house publications, and we’re looking forward to growing this with other bar associations soon,” said Full Court Press Publisher Morgan Morrissette Wright. “Making it easier for attorneys and libraries to sift through countless mounds of data to find the specific resource they’re looking for has been integral to Fastcase. Adding MARC records for Full Court Press titles is the latest way we are advancing the practice of law for our users.”

“As we continue to expand the availability of MARC records within the legal industry, it was important for us to partner with a company that understands the needs of law libraries and appreciates the benefits of technology,” said Cassidy President Joni Cassidy. “We look forward to the synergies that allow us to offer many more searchable records for titles in the years to come.”

MARC records are available per individual title or as a group with a discount. They can be purchased and will be delivered through Cassidy Cataloguing Services.
