This online module provides instruction on how to use Connexion Client to take quality control actions on records in the WorldCat database. Emphasis is on actions available to members with Full level cataloging authorizations (i.e. you do not need “Enhance” authorization to benefit from this course). After completing this web-based training, learners will be prepared to contribute to the library cooperative by taking actions to improve the quality of records in the WorldCat database, while taking advantage of the financial incentives for quality control contributions.
This course is intended for learners who are comfortable with the editing functionality of Connexion Browser and have sufficient knowledge of cataloging guidelines to contribute quality metadata to the WorldCat database. This course will be of particular benefit to catalogers who are spending time doing quality control editing at the local level, or technical services managers who wish to reduce OCLC cataloging costs through increased credits.
