GETTING THE LIBRARY CATALOG ONLINE
The Maritime library has completed a major step toward getting its catalog records online, recently completing the conversion of card catalog records to machine-readable catalog records. Previously only available only to library staff, the Athena catalog, which we used to accomplish this, is now available to the public in the Library Reading Room through equipment supplied by the Library Friends. What's next? Cataloging and inventorying all our periodicals, and migrating all the holdings in our Athena catalog into the NPS Voyager catalog, so that all our catalog records, representing our titles held as well as number of copies & their exact locations, will be available on the internet. (Our holdings at the title level are currently available online at http://www.library.nps.gov/) Interested in helping out? Call the library, 415-561-7030.NEW ACQUISITION IN HISTORIC DOCUMENTS
