appeared in a number of traditional card catalogs located in the Library. Much of the information
in these catalogs is also searchable over the Internet. This page links to the two methods for search the main Library of Congress Online Catalog and to several specialized catalogs for prints and photographs (PPOC), for sound recordings (SONIC) and a Z39.50 gateway to the main catalog data.

Authorities: Format and Indexes
Shannon Robinson's insight:

Authorities: Format and Indexes provides details on selected topics that catalogers need to identify and verify information in bibliographic and/or authority records via the OCLC ® authority file. It does not cover procedures for finding, creating, modifying, saving, or exporting authority records. Nor does it explain specialized functions such as replacing master name authority records or creating records and adding them to the authority file.
