ISBN RE-DIRECTED SEARCHES
|If you are working with Baker & Taylor to set up Title
Source in your library and you want to check LINC before ordering a title,
there is a search string that can be used to do a quick search in LINCPac
from Title Source. Here is the string that can be used to query LINCPac:|
(where xxx is your library's agency code)
When configured correctly in your Title Source account, this search string executes a search and finds the isbn of the bib record in LINC. You can then look at the copies to see if your library already owns the item.
|2005 - 122||CODI REGISTRATION|
|If you are interested in sending staff to CODI (Customers of Dynix Inc. Conference), please contact Pat Boze (firstname.lastname@example.org) for registration information.
