FEDCAT-L: FEDLINK Cataloging Peer Council      Top

The FEDLINK Cataloging Peer Council (FEDCAT-L) is a closed, unmoderated, list for FEDLINK members only. This structure facilitates the purpose of FEDCAT-L: to provide answers to FEDLINK members' practical cataloging questions and to cull from a broad number of electronic resources only those postings most relevant to FEDLINK's cataloging products and services, and advisory support mission. Discussions are routinely monitored by the FEDLINK Cataloging Peer Council -- a small, carefully selected, group of highly experienced federal catalogers acknowledged by the bibliographic utilities and their peers as leaders, speakers, instructors, and experts in specific MARC formats and subject areas.

OCLCFED: FEDLINK OCLC Members List      Top

OCLCFED is a moderated mailing list intended for the staff of US federal libraries and information centers that are members of the OCLC Online Computer Library Center. The list is maintained by the FEDLINK Network Operations (FNO) OCLC Team. FNO will use the list to distribute general information about products and prices, policies and practices of OCLC and the FEDLINK OCLC network and to distribute messages from list subscribers that are likely to be of general interest to all subscribers.

All subject areas related to OCLC and federal libraries' use of OCLC will be covered. To help you route messages within your library, the message's subject line will start with a regular character string that indicated the subject area of the message: GENERAL, TECHSVCS, ILL/UL, REF, and ACCESS.

Rather than duplicate information covered on other FEDLINK mailing lists such as FEDCAT-L and FEDREF-L, from time to time OCLCFED will carry summaries of information posted to other lists. The list may also point to interesting new information on the OCLC website ( http://www.oclc.org/).

To ask specific questions about OCLC, please continue to contact the FEDLINK OCLC Team directly, at [email protected], (202) 707-4800, or fax (202) 707-4837.
