The OLIS is pleased to announce a new document in the How To series:
How to Setup the WorldCat Registry Profile for the Aleph Online Catalog
A copy is available in the Footprints as Knowledge Base, entry 9113.
The WorldCat Registry is a free service from OCLC that allows libraries to share library-specific information with both patrons and vendors. Of particular note to the SUNY Aleph community is the ability to include deep linking URL’s to the Aleph OPAC. Such URL’s allow users to link to the Aleph catalog from:
- Open WorldCat – http://www.worldcat.org
- Google Books – http://books.google.com
- Services utilizing the WorldCat API such as IDS Search and SUNYSearch – http://search.sunyconnect.suny.edu/
This document will help you complete the Online Catalog setup within the WorldCat Registry profile.
