A LINC-L Listserv has been set up to allow library staff to post Horizon questions and help each other with answers. Several people have already signed up. Since this is a library staff listserv, it’s up to you to contribute and make this a successful list.
Here are the instructions for subscribing to the LINC–L listserv:
An email will confirm that your subscription has been processed and you will begin receiving all announcements posted to the linc-l list until you unsubscribe from the list. If you experience problems subscribing to this list, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

When adding items into LINC, the policy states that you should search for the item at least three different ways before sending the item in to the LTLS cataloging center. The ISBN is the most popular way to search, but if you are unable to locate an item by this number, you should also try title and author searches.
As of January 1, 2005, the ISBN was extended to a 13-digit number. At this time, LTLS has not implemented the conversion from 10 digit ISBNs to 13 digit ISBNs in the LINC catalog. If your item only has a 13 digit ISBN, search by title and author instead.
Send the item to the cataloging center when appropriate. Note: For Baker & Taylor items, you should wait a few days and check to see if the record will be loaded by the cataloging center for you.
