This session provides a demonstration of the browser interface to OCLC Connexion. Participants will learn how to navigate within the cataloging service, search for WorldCat records, edit, save, and take final actions on those records. The process of creating original records, including extracting metadata from an electronic resource, will be demonstrated.

To participate you will need your library's OCLC authorization and password for cataloging; an Internet-accessible computer using at least Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 1.5x; computer speakers or headphones; and a solid understanding of MARC tagging. A headset with a microphone for voice interaction is optional.
