Library-Created Collection Sets

As of September 30, 2014, Microform, Non-Microform, and library-created Electronic Collection Sets are no longer available via WorldCat Collection Sets. Some library-created sets have been migrated to our WorldCat knowledge base with ongoing record updates delivered via WorldShare Collection Manager. If your institution has not yet been provisioned for WorldShare Metadata Collection Manager and the WorldCat knowledge base, please request access to WorldShare Metadata.
