Abstract
Cataloging backlogs are a perennial area of concern for libraries. The authors propose that eliminating a cataloging backlog is unnecessary if items in the backlog are accessible to staff and patrons. In this paper a backlog cataloging project is described that uses the features of an online catalog to 1) control and reduce a backlog, 2) increase patron access to uncataloged items, and 3) train staff in the creation of online records.
