This message is posted to multiple listservs; my apologies in advance for duplication.
As you may be aware, in light of recent system disruptions and in response to requests from Regional Service Providers and library staff, OCLC has made the decision to extend the May 1, 2005, migration date for Passport cataloging and NACO CatME users to June 5, 2005, to allow more time for training in preparation for the move.
The ability to access the online authority save file via Passport users,
The ability to add new authority records via Passport and/or CatME,
The ability to replace authority records via Passport and/or CatME,
The ability to access submitted/responded records via Passport and/or CatME,
The ability to search or browse the OCLC authority file using Passport,
The ability to export authority records using Passport
Important clarification for CatME users:
OCLC will discontinue support for NACO functionality in CatME on June 5, however, CatME users *will* be able to continue to search, edit, and export authority records until July 1.
