OCLC CatExpress provides copy cataloging with limited editing capabilities at a low, flat-fee subscription price. With CatExpress, your library can search WorldCat, set and delete holdings, enter information in optional data fields, print labels, retrieve MARC records for loading into your local system, and track your library's usage with the Monthly Transaction Reports.

Attend this session to see a live demonstration of this easy to use, web-based interface to OCLC's WorldCat. And hear about the special NEBASE offer of a free trial month of the OCLC CatExpress service to new subscribers.

Presented by Christa Burns as the NEBASE Hour on December 3, 2008.
