Online Copy Catalogue System (OCS) is a Window-based application developed by the INFLIBNET Centre.It promotes co-operative cataloguing and avoids duplication of efforts. OCS facilitates libraries to interact with the Union

Catalogue of Books (IndCat) and catalogue their new acquisitions online. The OCS, on one hand, facilitates libraries to search and browse bibliographic records of documents available in IndCat and download selected records directly into SOUL 2.0 or any MARC21 compliant software. The holding information for the bibliographic record being downloaded from the IndCat gets updated automatically in the process. On the other hand, the interface facilitates creation of a new record for a document that is not available in the IndCat. This new record gets saved into local integrated LMS as well as into the IndCat simultaneously. Besides, online cataloguing and copy cataloguing, the interface also facilitates bulk uploading and downloading of bibliographic records of books. More details on OCS are available at
