CatExpress fully operational

Library Systems Newsletter [August 1999]

After months of conducting pilot projects, OCLC has put its Cataloging Express (CatExpress) service into full operation. The service is designed for small libraries, especially public and school libraries. The subscription-based service lets libraries access OCLC's WorldCat via the Web, add holding symbols and local information and download records to local automated library systems. All OCLC charges are included in the annual subscription rate. No special hardware or software is required, just a current generation Web browser on a workstation with Internet access.

CatExpress cannot be used for original cataloging, but small libraries usually experience hit rates of 98-99 percent.
