Good afternoon (message posted on Te-Puna-L; nz-libs, PUBSIG and CATSIG)

For those libraries who have yet to make up their minds about which OCLC service they might wish to use, Te Puna website is the place to visit to have your queries answered.

The Frequently Asked Questions information has been re-ordered by subject and can be accessed at: http://subscribers.natlib.govt.nz/news/connect/FAQ_OCLC_OCLC_Initiative.DOC#_top .  At the top of the page you will see the range of questions that have been asked by librarians around the country.  These have been grouped into categories such as 'Getting Started", 'Using OCLC cataloguing services', 'Using NLNZ cataloguing services', 'Library holdings...' etc.  

Beneath this overview you will find the answers.  This second section  is provided with hyperlinks to take you quickly to additional information, forms, email addresses or a return to the questions.

We have placed all OCLC information (including the FAQ)  in the User guides and policies Te Puna webpages, accessible at:  http://subscribers.natlib.govt.nz/support/userguides.htm#oclc
