OCLC Connexion Tips?

Nov - 5 - 2007
Nicole C. Engard

I think there is a need for a blog/website/mailing list/general list of OCLC Connexion tips! I’ve been attending training at PALINET and keep learning new little tips that will make my life easier – plus I keep finding that I sometimes know a thing or two that the others in the class didn’t. I think there is a need for a way for us to share this info so we can work more productively. Does such a site/tool exist? Do you want to create it? Just an idea :)

For now, here are the 2 tips I learned this week:

  • Typing ALT E G 6 P will get you the form to fill in for the 006 field
  • There is a macro for the 007 field: User Tools > Manage > Macros > Choose the 007 Macro and then assign it to the user tools and add to the toolbar.

2 Responses so far.

    I rely a lot on OCLC-CAT list. Whenever I’ve had questions, I’ve gotten lots of help, and sometimes I’ve gotten answers before I knew I had a question (like how to deal with the occasional disappearing screen in the catalog, when all you see is a miniature header bars!) Occasionally someone will post “hey, did you know this?” And you’ll find the names/email info for the Connexion gurus, who are knowledgeable about things like macros.

    From this website http://listserv.oclc.org/archives/oclc-cat.html you can become a member and search the archives.
