“OCLC and Cassidy Cataloguing Services, Inc. may finally reach a compromise. OCLC may grant permission to allow a WorldCat Local institution that has purchased Cassidy MARC record sets to view the records as part of its WorldCat Local subscription.”
Cassidy Cataloguing is very happy to report that we have signed an agreement with OCLC that enables us to display our records in WorldCat Local for Cassidy subscribers using that service as their OPAC. The records will only display to users of that institution’s WorldCat Local OPAC and will not be available to other libraries, or other commercial members, for copy cataloguing or to attach holding codes.
Cassidy Cataloguing will continue to upload P-CIP (cataloging-in-publication) MARC records into WorldCat on a monthly basis. Cassidy Cataloguing has also been offered the right to edit their records uploaded to WorldCat without having to relinquish the rights to them.
