Cataloger's Desktop

Library of Congress
News from CDS

Advanced Look at the New & Enhanced User Interface coming to Cataloger’s Desktop on September 10
First of 3 Weekly Messages . . .


“Favorites” give you the ability to bookmark and annotate important passages and share them with your colleagues, if you like. Create shortcuts to specific spots in Cataloger’s Desktop resources so you can link to them in email messages and your local library’s cataloging policy manuals and training materials.

You can also save searches that you want to re-run in the future, as well as save sessions that reflect recurring cataloging operations.  And— any bookmarks, annotations, or shortcuts you create in the current Cataloger’s Desktop system will carry forward in the new user interface.
