-In PINES, copy cataloging means more specifically that a PINES trained cataloger, known as a CAT1, finds a matching bibliographic record either from the PINES bibliographic database or from OCLC’s database WorldCat (OCLC hereafter), imports the OCLC record, and if editing is required, edits it to follow PINES cataloging specifications,​ then attaches the library’s holdings to the record. 
  
-A CAT1 has the highest cataloging authorization to work with bibliographic records at each PINES library system. CAT1 status is granted only after mandatory training by the PINES Cataloging Specialist. PINES has the right to revoke cataloging privileges of any member library if its work repeatedly fails to meet with established standards. If there is a cataloging staff change in a PINES library, it is the library director’s responsibility to notify the PINES Cataloging Specialist of the change so that training can be done as soon as possible. Each library system should have a cataloging coordinator that oversees and is responsible for (along with the system director) cataloging for the library, whether in-house or vendor. The coordinator also arranges and conducts or oversees all training for new system catalogers.+Copy cataloging is the process of using and editing, if required, an existing bibliographic record for a work in hand. Editing is restricted to corrections and additions to the information in the record. In PINES, there are two types of copy cataloging. The first type is when CAT1 or CAT2 catalogers discover and use a matching record within the PINES database to attach their library holdings. CAT1 catalogers can edit the bibliographic record for missing or incorrect information,​ following PINES cataloging specifications. The second type is when a CAT1 cataloger discovers a matching existing record in the OCLC WorldCat (OCLC hereafter) database and imports it into the PINES database. The record can also be edited for missing or incorrect information,​ preferably in OCLC for those accordingly trained. The CAT1 then attaches library holdings or passes it to a CAT2.

 Catalogers with CAT2 authorization are restricted to adding, deleting, or editing volume and copy information for their library systems. They are expected to report any incomplete records or errors in bibliographic information on records to their cataloging coordinators for resolution. System cataloging coordinators are responsible for training CAT2s in PINES standards and local practices. Catalogers with CAT2 authorization are restricted to adding, deleting, or editing volume and copy information for their library systems.
