OCLC, RLIN, Utlas
CATSS, WLN, and other national, regional, and local bibliographic resource sharing services offer member libraries online access to extensive union catalogs in MARC format, from which catalog data can be captured for use in local systems.
It can be used to download catalog information from OCLC, RLIN, EBSCO, UTLAS
, MARCIVE, BIBLIOFILE and others.
During the conversion of the library's UTLAS
records to the VTLS USMARC format, VTLS will link an English authority record to its French language equivalent so that they will be cross-referenced in the online authority file.
Proposed additions include RLIN, UTLAS
, WLN, and the Dow Jones News and Retrieval Service.

In addition to his own report of a trip to the British Library Document Supply Center in Boston Spa (U.K.), Morris has committed librarians at the University of Maine, McMaster University (Ontario), and representatives of both OCLC and UTLAS
to offer reality, possibility, and prediction.
Companies associated with the library and information industry market niche are strong supporters as voting members, including Faxon, EBSCONET, Dynix, Apple Computer, CLSI, Gaylord, UNISYS, UTLAS
, VTLS, and the H.W.
interface, acquisitions, serials control, and circulation modules.
In 1985 when the library converted to the UTLAS
T/50, we continued to use this support method for training and troubleshooting.
Since their introduction in the 70 s, the bibliographic utilities - OCLC, RLIN, WLN, and UTLAS
- have played a monumental role in providing various kinds of automated support for processing activities required by our libraries.
Sally Knight explains that Bibliofile was chosen for the Cattaraugus-Allegeny (New York) School Library System because of its cost and ease of use, and Maurice Freedman relates that Utlas
was selected over OCLC because it would better "solve particular problems related to the integration of existing databases."
