Add Online Catalog links

Verify the Online Catalog links to connect your patrons and staff to your local catalog to view the local call number and shelf status for items they are seeking.

• Go to WorldCat Registry > Online Catalog Links to get started.

• The Suggest Links feature will automatically generate URL syntaxes for many vendors and online catalog products. These suggested links appear in the search by ISBN, search by ISSN and search by OCLC Number sections.

• Use the Test button to verify that the suggested links work as expected in your local catalog. You may substitute your own ISBN, ISSN or OCLC number for the suggested ones; this ensures that the item is part of your library’s collection.

Available for free.   They have packs of 50.  You may order up to 4 packs at a time.   There is a main label and then a customer receipt on the label book.  You can write information that will help keep track of transaction numbers or titles.  Check the margin for the link to the USPS page.  Did I mention that the labels and the service are free?
