Are your patrons missing out on search results because of common misspellings? We have a solution! You can add commonly misspelled words to your MARC tags.

How To:

Use the MARC View Editor to add alternative terms and/or common misspellings for author names (700_a) and subjects (600 - 651). For example, for The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, you could add "Susanne Collins" in a 700_a tag. Then, if your patrons type in a common alternative or misspelling when searching by author name or subject, related results will still pop up!
