Simplified cataloging interface

The simplified cataloging interface offers streamlined Record Manager functionality focused on providing a straightforward approach to cataloging.

Simplified cataloging overview

Refer to the simplified cataloging training and documentation if:

  • You or your library uses the Cataloging Simplified role.
  • Your library has a CatExpress subscription. Libraries with a CatExpress subscription must use the CatExpress roles to enable the simplified cataloging interface functionality.

In this course, you will learn how to use the Record Manager simplified cataloging interface to match WorldCat records to items you are cataloging, set holdings and export records, download records from an export list, and optionally, add local data to records before exporting.
The Record Manager simplified cataloging interface is the replacement for the CatExpress user interface in Connexion browser.  If your library does not use the CatExpress user interface in Connexion browser, see Cataloging, Local holdings records, and NACO functionality for full Record Manager functionality training.
