Membership applications will be reviewed by PCC. Upon approval of the membership, each institution will placed in touch with an OCLC designated NACO contact to obtain an OCLC NACO authorization login. Using that login, the new member can create NACO records.
For funnel members, there is no minimum number of records required to contribute annually in order to maintain NACO membership. Funnel members contribute records collectively. It is up to local funnel members how much time you can commit. It also depends on the types of materials each institution acquires and the nature of institution’s collections.
