This live online module provides instruction on how to use Connexion Client to create original records to add to the WorldCat database. After completing this web-based training, learners will be prepared to use Connexion to efficiently create original records using a variety of methods, including blank workforms, deriving records, and extracting metadata from digital resources. The course will also explain financial incentives for adding new original records to WorldCat.
This course is intended for learners who are familiar with current cataloging rules (such as AACR2 and LC Rule Interpretations) and MARC, and are comfortable with using Connexion Client to search WorldCat, navigate through search results, and do basic editing. This course will be of particular benefit to catalogers who have created original bibliographic records in their local catalog but have not yet contributed records to WorldCat, and to technical services managers who oversee original cataloging operations.
