About QA-catalogue
English (USA)

QA catalogue is a set of metadata quality assessment tools for MARC based library catalogues. It helps catalogues and metadata experts to find the strong and weak parts of their catalogue. It is an Open Source toolset. QA catalogue reads MARC files (in binary MARC, MARCXML or other serialization formats), analyses different aspects of quality, and saves the results into CSV files. These CSV files could be used in different context, we provide a lightweight, web-based user interface for that.

QA catalogue's components are

- a web based dashboard to display the results of the analysis (
- a web service for ad-hoc validation of MARC records (

A running instance can be found at thanks to Universiteitsbibliotheek Gent.
