WorldCat Cataloging Partners

OCLC record delivery in coordination with your vendor orders

WorldCat Cataloging Partners is a collaborative effort with materials vendors to reduce the cost of cataloging for libraries. WorldCat Cataloging Partners will deliver OCLC MARC records that match the materials you order through participating vendor partners and set your library’s holdings automatically in WorldCat.


WorldCat Cataloging Partners delivers records that already exist in WorldCat, based on information from your materials vendors about the titles you've purchased. This service is included in your library's OCLC cataloging subscription price.

“WorldCat Cataloging Partners lets us get books cataloged faster. We don’t need to search and import each record separately, which saves cataloging time. It’s much easier for the processing staff to find the records they need when they need them.”
