Announcing new functionality for WorldCat Cataloging Partners!


On August 1, 2011, OCLC added new functionality to WorldCat Cataloging Partners, making it easier than ever to have local editing on your records!

The new functionality includes enhancements to the 856 field and the ability to have fields or portions or fields deleted from records.

With the new editing options for the 856 field, you can choose to:

  • Retain only an 856 field with vendor-supplied data or with a preferred domain name,
  • Add a prefix, and indicate preferred domain name,
  • Add linked text, public notes, and materials specified notes
    to the 856 field.

The new delete field functionality allows you to have complete fields, portions of fields, or fields with specific indicators deleted from records.

For more information, please contact Julie Whitley (800.848.5878, ext. 6159) or Sandi Jones (800.848.5878, ext. 6082).
