Hi Suzanne,

      I can't see using our Koha for basic cataloging students to  
input records for graded assignments.

        My plan is to input a set of records for some cookbooks that I  
use as descriptive cataloging examples.  It will be much more  
instructive for students to see the "answers" in a local catalog where  
I can control how they are displayed and searched. I can also put  
variant descriptive records for each book in the database, some  
without their access points, etc., to show how searching is affected  
and authority control works. I'm also fine with them doing whatever  
they want to input records for these via the staff client for  
practice. This (I hope) will be more useful for their exploration than  
just showing them the "right" answer MARC records from OCLC or in  
someone else's catalog or typing up an assignment as a document.

      With our new live online session environment I'll also be able  
to share my screen and show what a staff client looks like and how the  
input process works, as Faye has done.

Cheryl
