With WorldCat Cataloging Partners, you can:
Delivery of records is based on cataloging source and encoding level. If you want only DLC records, WorldCat Cataloging Partners will deliver only DLC records. If you don’t want CIP records, you won’t get them. Additional data such as invoice date, net price, barcodes, and other local data can be added to your bibliographic records, allowing your local system to create order and item records automatically.
You can also copy call numbers to any field and add up to fifty constant data notes to your records. WorldCat Cataloging Partners can produce a Partnering Data Record (PDR) to carry vendor data when a full record is not delivered or not found. A PDR can also be delivered in place of a record when another institution in your shared local catalog has already received the record.
Receive full records and call number labels for added copies or, in shared-catalog situations, you can choose to receive just one copy of a full bibliographic record for your entire group. Choices for secure electronic delivery include OCLC's Product Services Web and EDX.
The cost for each MARC record you receive via WorldCat Cataloging Partners is covered under your OCLC Cataloging Subscription and includes searching, editing, setting a holding, local data transfer to bibliographic records, archiving, reports, statistics, and an electronic label file.
OCLC can provide electronic files of spine and pocket labels for your WorldCat Cataloging Partners records. Choose LC, NLM or Dewey call numbers, and then retrieve the files and print labels using OCLC's Cataloging Label Program, or have your vendor do it before shipping.
The WorldCat Cataloging Partners Cataloging Report, generated upon delivery of completed records, lists records delivered and details why some titles may not have been received. It's handy for materials check-in and for comparison with an invoice or packing list. And WorldCat Cataloging Partners Web statistics let you use the Internet to view overall numbers and percentages for the past year.
