|Cataloging is a very important public service to library users everywhere. The Cataloging, Metadata, and Processing Unit at the MSU Library, catalogs items to make sure our users find all the resources
the MSU Library owns. Search points include not only title, author, publisher and
date, but subjects and abstracts, etc., so users can find items that they don’t already
know about. When we create new records we also share them with the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC). Other libraries do too, creating a world-wide network dedicated to making resources
discoverable by the public.
