This article discusses the use of OCLC's QuestionPoint service for managing electronic publications and other items that fall outside the scope of OCLC Library's OPAC and Web resources pages, yet need to be "put somewhere." The local knowledge base serves as both a collection development tool and as a virtual vertical file, with records that are easy to enter, search, update, or delete.
