SLS Remote Catalog

Introduction

SLS users can put their catalogs on the Internet for remote access by other SLS users. In order to become a remote catalog, you need to install SLS's XML infrastructure, known as XServe, on top of your library catalog. Users interested in setting up their library catalog as a remote catalog can contact our service provider, TR Computer for installation details.

To access these remote catalogs, you need to use WinADMIN to enter their configuration information into your local SLS system. The following WinADMIN screen shows what information is needed.

Copy Cataloging

Use WinCAT/WebCAT to search remote catalogs for copy cataloging. Once a record from the remote catalog is retrieved, you can click the Copy button to tranfer it in real-time to your WinCAT/WebCAT editor as a new record. For example:
