Thanks to the Uniform Information Gateway in the near past all Czech libraries could use a function, which enabled search and retrieve of bibliographic records from Czech and foreign information resources, mainly bibliographic databases, which are searchable through UIG. Limit of this functionality was that format of records of library which "demands" records and the library which "offers" records must be the same. New version of copy cataloging module is run since April 2004 and this version cracks present limits. This is highly important in these days when most of Czech libraries are planning and some of them are just now migrating from UNIMARC to MARC 21 format. Thanks to the robust converter developed by Charles University Computer Centre for needs of National Library of the Czech Republic is now possible bidirectional conversion. Records can be easily converted on the fly from UNIMARC to MARC 21 as well as from MARC 21 to UNIMARC.

Copy cataloging is carried out directly in local library system environment independently on native UIG interface. The only requirement is that library system must have Z39.50 client. Copy cataloging is highly valuable for cataloging and acquisition staff. Their work will be more efficient. Copy cataloging function is free of charge for all Czech libraries.
