Vendor record contribution
Look good to librarians: Get bibliographic records for your materials into WorldCat as early as possible in the publishing cycle. When you put descriptive metadata directly into WorldCat—even months before titles are released—you're making it much easier for librarians around the world to catalog their newest acquisitions.
OCLC's cataloging services are the biggest and busiest in the world, indexing more than 42 million items every year. Examples of vendors that have partnered with OCLC include Baker & Taylor, Casalini Libri, East View Information Services, Ingram Library Services, Quality Books and Recorded Books to name just a few. For a complete list of partners, see our Vendor Program Participants page.
