CataList primarily sources bibliographic data for CataList ISBN listings from the BNC BiblioShare database, which is populated from publisher ONIX files. The editing function on the Title Detail page, however, allows you to add any missing data and quick corrections directly into CataList. Check out our data flow infographic to get an overview of the data import and update processes.

Using editing tools and section locks
When should you use the manual editing tools and when should you lock data? There are three main scenarios where manually editing your data can be really useful.
You can see the list of all your titles that have locked sections using the Locked Titles Report in the Settings > Reports tab.
Corrections in CataList are never sent back to BiblioShare – data flows in one direction only (from BiblioShare into CataList).
