Extend your cataloging with add-on services

These tools further automate metadata creation and record maintenance processes.

Accessions List

Receive a list of recently cataloged acquisitions in electronic format to increase your library's visibility.

Bibliographic Record Notification

Reduce your catalog maintenance by automatically receiving upgraded catalog records. Records upgraded from minimal to full level, that have TOC added or enhanced, or that match other customizable criteria can be delivered to your library.

Cataloging Label Program

Print cataloging labels directly from bibliographic records displayed in the Connexion browser using OCLC's Cataloging Label Program. The program lets you edit labels; specify print constants, ranges and copy numbers; and print multiple copies. You can also save labels for printing at a later time. The program supports printing to pin feed or laser stock.

Dewey services

Connexion provides the power of Dewey through the Web as an add-on service. This option gives you access to an enhanced version of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC22) database or to the 14th abridged edition of the DDC database.

Dewey Cutter program

This Windows application is used with Connexion browser to automatically provide cutter numbers from the OCLC Four-Figure Cutter Tables (Cutter Four-Figure Table and Cutter-Sanborn Four-Figure Table) upon input of text. The program is similar to the Dewey Cutter macro that is used with Connexion client.

Digital Archive

Connexion also allows you to catalog resources that have been digitally preserved through the OCLC Digital Archive. The Digital Archive provides a secure storage environment for you to easily manage and monitor the health of your master files and digital originals. It stores master files and digital originals in a secure, managed and separate environment whether you've built your digital collections using CONTENTdm or another local access repository.

Increase the value of the investments your library has made in your electronic serials collection, serials management services and in WorldCat.

Terminologies Services

Access multiple controlled vocabularies to help you create consistent metadata for your library, museum, or archive collections.
