Z39.50 Cataloging

Z39.50 is an international standard client–server protocol for searching and retrieving information from a database.  Marmot members use it to get MARC records from other libraries. The remote system does not have to be an Innovative system. However, both systems must have Internet access and the remote system must run a functioning Z39.50 server.  Marmot has added several Z39.50 targets to Cataloging function in Sierra.
