OPALS MARC Record Cataloguing Module

Catalogue books, eBooks, multimedia, digital archives,  and more.

OPALS stores complete MARC format bibliographic records. OPALS uses data in the fixed fields, indicator bytes and sub-fields to access resources efficiently and to display that data effectively.

There are several ways to add MARC records to OPALS.

  • Original entry - using OPALS feature-rich MARC editor
  • Z-import – uses a built-in z39.50 client to access protocol compliant databases (ex. Library of Congress, National Library of Canada, etc., National Library of Scotland, etc.) to retrieve MARC records, edit, and save them
  • Batch Import MARC record files (ex. from vendors)
  • eBook MARC record Batch Import Wizard – globally and simultaneously enhances vendor provided records to display eBook media icon, your own text link descriptors, “eBook” call number prefix, & prevents merging with print versions of same title publications…
  • Library of Congress Subject Authority File Access
  • Local Subject Heading Access
