Apologies to our producer and distributor friends for flinging jargon
around in my reply to this discussion. OCLC is an enormous online
cataloging database which many libraries in the US use to catalog their
holdings. It is not a service which is generally available to the public
(although there is an end-user interface to the database called
FirstSearch--some libraries provide public access to OCLC databases via
this interface).

B&T does stand for Baker & Taylor. And NICEM is the National Information
Center for Educational Media.

I've been at this job too long, I guess...
