This webinar will show users how to leverage the free Google Sheets Add-on called MatchMARC to retrieve OCLC records based on user criteria. Advantages of using MatchMARC over OCLC’s Connexion will be highlighted. Examples of workflows made possible by the spreadsheet environment and MARC record delivery will be given. OCLC membership is needed to use this tool.
MatchMARC is a tool written by presenter Michelle Suranofsky. It was initially designed for a specific cataloging project in 2018. Since then its functionality has expanded for broader use cases at Lehigh University and other university library users who have made requests.
