The WorldCat Collection Analysis Service User Guide is a guide to the operation of the WorldCat Collection Analysis service and to the various analysis displays produced by the service.
Screen displays shown in this document are taken from OCLC development environments; these environments are typically limited in scope. Although the names of real OCLC member libraries are often shown, the associated data is displayed for demonstration purposes only and is not in any way meant to be an accurate representation of their holdings.
The WorldCat Collection Analysis Service User Guide is designed to assist acquisitions librarians and other library staff in identifying strengths, locating gaps, and otherwise evaluating their collections.
Throughout this Guide the following typographical conventions are used:
|l, l||lowercase letter l (el)|
|1, 1||digit one|
|I, I||uppercase letter i (eye)|
|O, O||upper case letter o|
|0, 0||digit zero|
Note: These characters are not interchangeable.
Keys that you press are enclosed in angle brackets < >. The keys in this Guide are those found on the typical PC keyboard.
Examples: < Shift > < Alt > < F10 >
In procedures, data that you must enter exactly as shown appears in boldface type.
Data you need to supply is described in brackets in italic typeface.
Example: au [keyword]
Do not type the brackets.
