Partner with cataloging experts to assist with your library’s needs.
Improve discovery and circulation with access to all of your resources.
If your holdings aren’t current in WorldCat, or they’re missing from your OPAC, they’re all but invisible to your users. But when your holdings are current in WorldCat—as part of your Contract Cataloging project—they gain visibility on the Web through WorldCat.org, many popular search engines and other OCLC partners. That gives your library an increased return on the investments you’ve made in your collections.
Take advantage of our expertise
Most OCLC Contract Cataloging staff are professional librarians who hold, in many cases, subject-related degrees in addition to their MLS degree. We supplement our professional cataloging staff with a team of highly trained paraprofessional catalogers, all of whom received training from professional librarians. Our staff supports 30+ languages in multiple formats using RDA and AACR2 standards.
Clear your cataloging backlog with shelf-ready materials without adding staff
Whether your library is working to incorporate a large, new collection or just trying to catch up, adding library staff to deal with a one-time “bump” in your cataloging needs is rarely an option. We can help manage your cataloging needs so that your staff can concentrate on higher priority tasks.
