Last year we began a phased improvement project of PALMPrint’s metadata and search capabilities. The first phase is now complete and all records in the PALMPrint catalog now include an OCLC number.
The ability to find and retrieve items by OCLC number makes searching and requesting materials from PALMPrint even easier. Future phases will result in additional improvements to the metadata with the ultimate goal of making complete PALMPrint records available for inclusion in your local ILS.
As a reminder, each PALMPrint member library has an annual $100 circulation credit. This includes our scan-and-send service! So, next time you are handling an interlibrary loan request, give PALMPrint a try.
For additional tips on searching and requesting materials through PALMPrint, please check out the PALMPrint User Guide.
