The Global KB is shared by all libraries that participate in QuestionPoint. It is a cooperatively built resource for reference support and discovery work. All QuestionPoint libraries can contribute records to the Global KB. All QuestionPoint librarians can search it.
How the Global KB grows:
- Editors of the Global KB review each record for relevance. Therefore, libraries do not need to decide if a record is relevant before they submit it.
- Editors follow guidelines to remove personal information and to correct errors in grammar and spelling while preserving the integrity of the information.
- Editors activate records to make them available for searching and viewing by all QuestionPoint librarians. Editors may also mark records for public access so patrons may view them.
