Test your z39.50

Migrating to a new integrated library system? Library software, such as ILLiad, not connecting to your catalog? Don’t make my mistake and assume your public access catalog equals your library’s z39.50 connection.

The Library of Congress has a great search tool buried in their z39.50 gateway page that can test your z39.50 connection: http://www.loc.gov/z3950/test.html

If your test has errors, you either have the wrong information or something is amiss on the server/setting side.
