Classification Web

This announcement from CDS:
You may have noticed recently the addition of a link for "Library of Congress OPAC (read-only)" on the Class Web OPAC page. This link was included for ALA Midwinter on an experimental basis and it connected to mirror version of the LC OPAC that is updated weekly.

CDS is happy to announce that as of today, March 15, 2004, this link is permanent and has been enhanced. It now connects to the live LC OPAC which is updated daily. It will still not be possible for LC staff to update cataloging records via this portal, so the display remains "read-only", but response time should be greatly increased and the currency of the data substantially improved.
