A new OCLC Connexion cataloging tool lets librarians automatically harvest and create WorldCat records for digital resources. Using either Connexion client or browser, librarians just type in a URL and the Metadata Extractor captures and formats data into a bibliographic workform for Web sites as well as locally stored .htm, .html, .pdf and .doc files.
This will speed cataloging for more types of e-resources, such as electronic dissertations, theses and government documents, by reducing typing and cut-and-paste operations.
