What's new? Collection Manager's November 2016 release brings you a new feature for query collections. Additionally, WorldCat knowledge base collections were added and refreshed this month.


I want to...


Integrate full-text links for e-resource collections

Add a WorldCat knowledge base collection and integrate it with other OCLC services. See how to expose full-text links, set and automatically maintain holdings in WorldCat, output MARC records, and more.


Output MARC records based on the items returned in a query of the WorldCat database

Create a WorldCat query collection by searching WorldCat item indexes in Collection Manager. Output records for your holdings.


Output records and/or labels in conjunction with my provider for shelf-ready materials

Learn how to create a WorldCat cataloging partner collection, customize your records to include invoicing and provider data, and maintain holdings in WorldCat.


Synchronize my ILS with my holdings in WorldCat

Learn how to create WorldCat data sync collections, upload data, and interpret output and reports.


Automatically receive updated MARC records as master records are enhanced

Get WorldCat updates for your WorldCat holdings. If you set holdings in WorldCat through any OCLC product or service, configure your record profile to output updated records as master records in WorldCat are enhanced.


Get WorldCat records, holdings, and full-text links for content from your providers

Find out how to get records, holdings and/or full-text links for content from providers that send library-specific holdings, DDA collections, and electronic order information.


Set holdings in WorldCat

Use a knowledge base collection, cataloging partner collection, or a data sync collection through Collection Manager to set holdings in WorldCat.
