OCLC offers a number of ways to increase your cataloging efficiency that are included in your OCLC cataloging subscription. Vendors also offer additional services that can enhance your cataloging efficiency and get materials out faster to the user. In this two-hour online session we will explore a number of additional ways to do OCLC cataloging, such as using PromptCat, Bibliographic Notification, and the new WorldCat Cataloging Partners services. We will also look at available vendor services such as shelf-ready processing and automated authority control.
You will learn:
- OCLC cataloging services and their potential benefits
- Additional vendor services for cataloging and processing
- Where to find information about these services
- How to assess real costs
