Title
Madonna, Brahms, and President Clinton : reference use of the OCLC Authority File
Source
RQ. 33(1994) no.3, S.395-403
Year

Abstract
The OCLC Authority File is one of the most underused and underrated yet most powerful tool for answering reference questions. It provides the benefits of no cost searching, access to a wealth of biographical and geographical information online, increased staff productivity by reducing research time, multiple cross reference access points, and documenting sources used to verify the information. The flexible searching protocol and the consolidation in one record of both the authorized and all variant forms for personal, corporate, and geographical names, subject headings, and uniform titles (created by the Library of Congress and the National Coordinated Cataloguing Operations (NACO)) mean that searchers need know only one of the forms to retrieve the established heading
