OCLC RetroCon Service for Yale University

The OCLC RetroCon service (http://www.oclc.org) is converting into machine-readable form approximately 150,000 catalog records representing monographs and serials held in Yale University Library's East Asian Collection. The conversion project will run through June 2003. The records will contain vernacular characters and romanized information.

"Yale University Library's East Asian Collection is one of the most important collections of East Asian materials in the U.S.," said Gary Houk, vice president of OCLC Services. "This OCLC RetroCon project will enhance the richness of the CJK (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) collection in WorldCat (the OCLC Online Union Catalog), thereby enabling researchers beyond the Yale campus to discover and gain access to these valuable materials."

This 3-year project is one of several OCLC RetroCon projects currently under way that will result in the retrospective conversion of more than 2 million records representing materials held in more than 10 libraries across the Yale University campus.
