A full-service online cataloging tool

Connexion is OCLC’s flagship cataloging service, a powerful, flexible, easy to use suite of tools with built-in access to WorldCat.

Libraries use Connexion to create and edit quality bibliographic and authority records, to help users find the materials they need faster, and share records with the entire OCLC cooperative to the benefit of libraries around the world.

  • Join OCLC-CJK, a listserv discussion of OCLC Chinese, Japanese, and Korean functionality. Or browse the archives.

Connexion has functionality, such as controlling headings, that allows us to do our work faster and more accurately. This helps us put materials in our users’ hands that much sooner, with the best possible records to match.
