A little help from our friend the internet

For anyone out there working on a similar project here is a list of websites we are finding useful:

LibraryWorld: We are using this web-based library automation service to catalog and store all of our records.

WorldCat: Very helpful in locating records not available in LibraryWorld and in finding the correct spelling for foreign-language titles, also helpful for call numbers.

Roman Numerals Calculator: I only know x, i, and v.

Library of Congress class schedules: good for checking call numbers.

OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards: What field should I use?

Google Translate: While not really necessary, this site has a virtual keyboard that can be helpful with diacritics.  Plus it is really fun when computers say things in foreign languages.
