  • Valid account number(s)
  • Any data elements needed (such as barcodes, list/net price, etc.)
  • Any physical processing that might need to be done (such as labels, etc.)
  • Any charges the material vendor(s) might have for facilitating their services with WorldCat Cataloging Partners and/or any needed physical processing

You will also need to investigate you local systems needs, such as:

  • If and what data elements are required
  • What formatting is required for prices and dates, if needed
