End your frustrating search for high-quality language or non-book bibliographic records. OCLC has partnered with vendors in a new venture to make cataloging more efficient. OCLC is working closely with distributors, importers, booksellers, and publishers to provide bibliographic information faster and full MARC cataloging at an overall lower rate. Participating vendors are designated as OCLC Cataloging Partners. Twelve vendors are currently in the growing program, including Books on Tape, Ediciones Universal, Libros sin Fronteras, and Midwest Tape.

OCLC and each partner guarantee a full record for each item on their active title list. OCLC staff edits each record to match your local cataloging practice. Libraries benefit by getting materials into circulation sooner, saving time and money. For more information about this new program, visit or contact Kay Vincent at Amigos, or 1-800 843-8482 (972-651-8000 in the Dallas area), ext.2888.
