    Slide 6:Browser settings, superficially

    Most browsers are supported Cache settings determine how web pages are re-displayed: set on automatic Cookies update the session timer and keep track of the current screen: not required, but some features will not work Popup blockers can interfere with functions that open separate browser windows. Examples: label displays, the list of keystrokes, authority control, and Help Advise: turn off while using Connexion ?See Requirements, Access, Interface Map in browser documentation Documentation has step-by-step instructions, too.Documentation has step-by-step instructions, too.

    Changes to the text of record fields are not sent to the server until you use the Action list (to reformat, validate, save, etc.), the View list (to switch to another edit view or display view), or the Functions list (for field-level actions). ?Occasionally reformat the record to make sure that your changes are stored on the server.

    Slide 11:View includes bibliographic views, and also which screen/editing features are shownView includes bibliographic views, and also which screen/editing features are shown

    Slide 12:Create records 3 ways

    Create bibliographic records Derive a new record from an existing record and modify Enter content in a blank workform Begin with fields extracted or generated from Web page or other electronic content metadata for the item Create multiple records from one URL Import records (from local catalog, e.g.) and add to WorldCat Import, but not from PromptCat, etc., yetImport, but not from PromptCat, etc., yet

    Slide 13:Exporting

    Export bibliographic records or authority records to a file on the Connexion server, and then download the file to your workstation. Or export records directly to your local system via TCP/IP connection Export right away, or store in Save file to export in a group Export bibliographic records in MARC, in Dublin Core HTML, or in Dublin Core RDF. For export to a local system, verify which formats your local system can accept. You can export authority records in MARC format only. Single or batch Export bibliographic records in MARC, in Dublin Core HTML, or in Dublin Core RDF. For export to a local system, verify which formats your local system can accept. You can export authority records in MARC format only. Single or batch

    Slide 14:Exporting

    Single or batch export: record at a time or export a group of flagged records from the save file Export bibliographic records in MARC, in Dublin Core HTML, or in Dublin Core RDF Authority records export in MARC only Validation options can be set at different levels, including turned off

    Slide 15:Ending a session

    When clicking Logoff to end a session, the system checks for records in edit mode, including locked master records and new records not saved or added The system displays a message to remind you to save the records or complete editing and take a final action before logging off. i.e., anything viewed in edit mode You can turn off warningi.e., anything viewed in edit mode You can turn off warning
