OCLC number searches

Searches for OCLC numbers in the NHU-PAC are not currently working as they should.  We're working to get them to function correctly, so you just have to enter the numbers.

For now, you'll need to include the 2- or 3-letter prefix that goes with the number, and, for numbers with fewer than 8 digits, add enough zeroes to turn them into 8-digit numbers.  Thus, to search for OCLC# 2, enter ocm00000002.  Numbers up to 8 digits long have the prefix ocm, 9-digit numbers use the prefix ocn, and the new 10-digit numbers have on.


Again, we're working to get this corrected soon so you can just enter the numbers and not worry about prefixes.
