Expanded Cataloging Services
OCLC WorldCat Access
INFOhio has joined with Ohio's Information Technology Centers (ITCs) that support INFOhio to purchase an expanded cataloging subscription from OHIONET/OCLC. The expanded cataloging service allows schools automated with INFOhio to access OCLC WorldCat using the SmartPort feature; they can import an unlimited number of bibliographic records throughout the 2010-2011 school year.
The OCLC WorldCat bibliographic database contains more than 100 million records from all types of libraries worldwide. WorkFlows users can select and download individual bibliographic records by using SmartPort. A SmartPort connection to WorldCat has been established through each Information Technology Center (ITC), so WorkFlows users need no separate username or password to access WorldCat.
School libraries that are not automated with INFOhio may subscribe to CatExpress directly through OHIONET for 2010-2011 and will retrieve exported records directly from OCLC's website (rather than the INFOhio website). For OHIONET membership information, please contact Jill Boggs Brust, 800-686-8975, ext. 20, email@example.com.
There is no limit to the number of OCLC records schools can capture,
but we do encourage library staff to use
SmartPort to search the INFOhio Curriculum Resource Catalog
first, as those records may contain standard alignments that are not found
