Connexion Client Module 09 - Authority Control

Scheduled Offerings

Course Overview

This live online module provides instruction on how to use Connexion Client to perform authority control work within bibliographic records. After completing this web-based training, learners will be prepared to search the authority file, add a selected authority record to a bibliographic field, and link headings in bibliographic records to the LC authority file.


This course is intended for learners who have a basic understanding of cataloging principles and MARC, have some cataloging experience, 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 create original bibliographic records or who do extensive editing of existing records, to library staff who need to find and export authority records to provide cross-reference structures in their local catalog, and to technical services managers who oversee these activities.
