Shining the light on un-cataloged Montana materials

Do you have un-cataloged Montana materials in your library? Share your Montana treasures with us and take the first step to get them in your catalog and in the hands of your patrons.

The MLA Technical Services Interest Group is providing cataloging and discovery assistance to Montana libraries. If you need help getting an item cataloged that cannot be found, let us know about it.

Use the form below to submit items if the following conditions apply:

  • You are unable to find an existing bibliographic record in your local or consortium catalog that describes your item; or you can only find a very incomplete bibliographic record in your local or consortium catalog that matches your item.
  • You are unable to find an existing bibliographic record in OCLC that describes your item; or you can only find a very incomplete bibliographic record in OCLC that matches your item.
  • Your item is set in Montana, has Montana themes or issues, or is by a Montana author or illustrator.

Required Item information is title and format. Additional item information as known includes author, edition, publisher, date, ISBN, and subject.

All submitted items will be reviewed for cataloging as volunteer time and training opportunities allow. You will be contacted if your item receives cataloging. Please understand submitting items does not guarantee they will receive immediate cataloging.

In addition to receiving help with your materials, participating in this project will provide valuable data to be used in assessing cataloging needs throughout the state.
