Sign Up for New “Biblios” Cataloging Tool…01.20.09

20 01 2009

Nicole Engard in her post Calling all Catalogers [http://www.web2learning.net/archives/2522] today about her work in creating a new cataloging tool called ‡biblios.net writes:

“… ‡biblios.net is a web-based original and copy cataloging tool with built in federated search of any Z39.50 target (via an integrated search registry with over 2000 targets – or by adding your own) and a large (30 million strong) shared database of catalog records. This means that you can visit ‡biblios.net and benefit from the work of other catalogers who have gone before you. You can also edit and contribute to the database without any restrictions.

I have also worked on creating some macros (others can be written by users) to help streamline some of our cataloging processes and templates for common item types to make original cataloging a little bit easier…”

I am signing up and will take a closer look!  I currently use a cataloging feature in our ILS software package which includes a Z39.50 feature.
