The two‐pronged approach of OCLC’s CORC project is described by a participant in the project’s beta test. One element is the building of a collection of catalog records of Internet accessible resources, reflecting two different metadata standards. The development of automated cataloging features and the issues of link maintenance are discussed. The second major element of the project is building a database of metasites or “pathfinders” that serve as subject guides to the Internet. The two types of pathfinders are examined along with the important role that they can play in a library’s organization of Web resources.
