Requesting Original Cataloging for Your Item

Modified on Wed, 19 Oct 2022 at 04:33 PM

If a record is not available for download in CatExpress, please complete an original cataloging request at If you need to get the item out on your shelves quickly (e.g. for a library program or author visit), you may create a brief bibliographic record using the Add Brief Title wizard. Please complete the Request for Original Cataloging form immediately. Include on the form that a brief record has been created. 

A member of our Technical Services Committee will process your request and notify you via email when the bibliographic record is available in WorkFlows.


Brief records are appropriate for interlibrary loan materials, fast adds, and locally created kits.
