The Avi Chai Union Catalog -- A catalog containing the holdings of numerous Avi Chai school libraries. The catalog is Z39.50 compliant, meaning that you can download records from it and put them in your catalog. You can search in Hebrew and English and see records in both languages. If you want to add the union catalog to the list of libraries on your system that you can use to search for records, here's the information you need:


Host Name: avichai.calypso.scoolaid.net

Port: 210

Database Name: avichai

Syntax: USMARC

Library Pages from Avi Chai Bookshelf Libraries--Use this list to link to Avi Chai Bookshelf libraries that are online. Some of them even allow you to access their catalogs. Having a library page on your school's website with a link to it from the home page is an excellent way of promoting the importance of the school library in the instructional program.
