Abstract:

OCLC's Cooperative Online Resource Catalog (CORC) brings collaboration of the type long practiced by libraries to the description of Internet resources. Begun as a research project in 1998, it is now being developed into a full OCLC service. CORC users share a centralized database of resource descriptions accessed and edited through Web browsers. Collaboration within the project occurs on a number of levels to allow sharing of information within and among institutions around the world. By working closely with an enthusiastic group ofinterested libraries and librarians, we have concentrated on rapid interactive development while actually running a prototype service. Specific features that facilitate collaboration in CORC include Unicode support, strong support for the entry and linking of authority records, and support of multiple metadata formats. CORC is closely integrated with existing MARC21 systems, such as OCLC's WorldCat, while also supporting newer metadata formats, such as Dublin Core. This integration has proven to be both one of the most attractive features of CORC, as well as a continuing challenge.
