Question
How do I set up OCLC to use with Aleph? 
Answer
Many institutions use OCLC as a major source of bibliographic and authority records for materials added to their collections. Records are typically exported from OCLC and automatically loaded in Aleph. Currently, OCLC offers two methods to access records from the WorldCat database for cataloging purposes: a web interface using a standard web browser and a client interface using a free Windows-based software program provided by OCLC.
