The ultimate aim of KRC is to supply researchers with all the materials that they need in order to do research, become more educated and empowered.
One of the fundamental tools that we use in order to work toward that ultimate aim is the union catalogue as an indispensable element of any effective system of resource-sharing.
Union catalogues have been so successful and ubiquitous that it is easy to overlook the contributions to library services they have made and are continuing to make.
It is a technological marvel that anyone, anywhere in the world with access to a computer and the Web can check on the vast holdings of the large libraries and, working through linked inter-library loan systems, obtain items that may not be available in their own KRC.
