OCLC upload tips and tricks

by Hayley Mapley & Alex Buckley

Koha is a Library Management System (LMS) used worldwide by more than 15,000 libraries. The Koha team at Catalyst are passionate about using Koha and helping libraries (big and small!) get the most out of their Koha LMS.

This is the first blog in our Koha OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) tips and tricks series, to help you get the most out of your catalogue uploads. In this post, Alex and Hayley will introduce what OCLC/Te Puna is, what the team has learned through implementing various automated reports for our clients, and ways to avoid some of the common pitfalls they encountered along the way.
