Abstract

Based on their experience at The Pennsylvania State University Libraries, the authors discuss the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) Enhance program as a model of cooperative cataloging. Having received Enhance status for three formats-maps, monographs, and video recordings-catalogers at Penn State are able to add access points, correct errors, establish authorized headings, add call numbers, and improve the content of shared master records in the OCLC database. The authors assess various features of the Enhance program-training, documentation, outcomes-and offer recommendations for the future.
