WorldCat Cataloging Partners checklist

Customers need to have a conversation with their materials vendor(s) concerning the following items:

  • 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

Customers will need to investigate their own local systems needs, such as:

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