<b>Problem statement:</b> The process of transmission of bibliographic records between libraries is a complex task, usually treated by the Z39.50 protocol. <b>Approach:</b> The objective of this research is to propose an alternative method to simplify this process, using the techniques of content syndication. <b>Results:</b> The computer program compares the feasibility of using different formats (ATOM, RSS1.0, RSS2.0 and MARC-XML) to convey and share library catalogues of various sizes (up to 1 millon records) between libraries. Tests have shown that smaller collections of 25,000 records, the time insertion/import catalogues is less than 1 min. <b>Conclusion/Recommendations:</b> The analysis suggests that syndication is a useful technique for the transmission and retrieval of bibliographic information
