You can profile a new WorldCat Cataloging Partners service account, revise an existing account, or, make an account inactive by using the OCLC Online Service Center (OSC).
Before you begin
Highly recommended: Use the pre-order checklist before you complete the WorldCat Cataloging Partners profiling form. The checklist contains some key pieces of information you should gather and items to discuss with your material vendor(s) before you complete the profiling form.
- If your vendor is Midwest Tape, OverDrive, Random House/Books on Tape, Naxos or Distribution Video and Audio, you will need to use the Cataloging Partners MARC Request form. For all other vendors, use the Vendor Partner List to determine how to order.
- If your vendor is Library Ideas, please use the Cataloging Partners MARC Request for Library Ideas form.
- If you have questions about MARC records for OverDrive titles, please see the FAQ.
- If you have questions about MARC records for Naxos titles, please see the FAQ.
- If you have questions about MARC records for Library Ideas titles, please see the FAQ.
- If you are unable to use the Online Service Center, please use the PDF order form.
