Make your entire collection visible on the Web

Your library’s symbol is automatically added to the matching WorldCat record for every MARC record you obtain through this service. This makes resources in your collection more visible through familiar search engines, WorldCat.org and other WorldCat partner Web sites.

“WorldCat Cataloging Partners lets us get books cataloged faster. We don’t need to search and import each record separately, which saves cataloging time. It’s much easier for the processing staff to find the records they need when they need them.”
