This online module provides instruction on performing basic bibliographic searches using OCLC’s Connexion Browser cataloging software. After completing this web-based training, learners will be able to conduct basic searches for bibliographic records in WorldCat, and evaluate whether a given record matches the item to be cataloged. This is the second part of a three module series designed to enable basic copy cataloging work in Connexion Browser.
This course is designed for learners who have little or no previous experience with Connexion Browser, and who may be new to library work. This class will be of particular benefit to new copy catalogers. It will also be beneficial to original catalogers who need to determine, before they create an original record, that no matching record exists.
