Catalog Copy for most of our Roman script material has been more readily, and reliably available on OCLC for some time now, and many acquisitions and copy cataloging units have already streamlined their workflows to search OCLC alone for most Roman script copy.Goal: Smooth migration to OCLC from RLIN21 for all acquisitions and cataloging units that currently use RLIN21 as part of their workflow.These units include those in SML, as well as Divinity, the science libraries, Medical, and the Arts Libraries.Non-Roman Script OCLC search and export authorizations would allow for search and export, but not editing and updating.

Roman script copy cataloging has already migrated, for the most part (see introduction) RLG is conducting a survey to determine what our migration plans are, and when non-Roman script data migration needs to happen. DONE Survey completed by Yale, and submitted 11 August 2006.

These specialized catalogers use fields and data that do not currently display in OCLC.
