Since you cannot actually download the LOCC from BookCAT directly anyway, you can start storing your LOCC/Dewey codes manually
for the moment: as I said, you will be able to move them in the proper field if/when it will be available. And you would have it stored anyway even if it won't be implemented...
Fredrik will surely report if/when it is implemented and if it will be possible to store LOCC and/or Dewey's directly in BookCAT.
To search & download a book using the LCCN code, you must simply enter the LCCN value into the "ISBN/LCCN" field and click on the "add" button, exactly like you do for ISBN's.
The search method acts exactly the same using ISBN or LCCN codes.
What I would do:
Search for a book in BookCAT using ISBN or LCCN number, i.e. : ISBSN=0201710986 or LCCN=2001267821 and download data for Elizabeth Castro's book named "XML for the World Wide Web".
Now I open a Web Browser, i.e. Internet Explorer on The Library of Congress Basic Search
page that you can find here:http://catalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebreco ... PAGE=First
Now I simply copy the LCCN code from BookCAT ( 2001267821 ) and paste it into the LoC's "Search Text" field, then I choose "LCCN-ISSN-ISBN" from the "Search Type" field immediately below.
I press the "Begin Search " button and find the Book I queried using BookCAT.
Now I press the "Full Record
" Tab so that I can find ALL
available codes at Loc for that Book ( LC Classification-Dewey Class No-Other System No-Quality Code) and simply copy & paste the ones I need, in example LCC & Dewey, into my Custom fields in BookCAT.
Obviously you can copy&paste also ALL other missing information you are interested in...
That's all. I find it easy & fast !
If you need help to rename Custom fields in BookCAT to use for that purpose, please let me know
Hope this helps & have a nice day
