Use these instruction to create a database-only knowledge base collection through Collection Manager. Database-only collections are used primarily by libraries with WorldShare Acquisitions and/or WorldShare License Manager. These libraries need to acquire collections and/or associate licenses with collections that do not have a defined list of titles.
For example, a library might create a database-only collection for the Oxford English Dictionary website. Doing so would allow them to create an order in Acquisitions and/or an entry in their WorldCat Discovery A to Z list with minimal effort. A database-only collection can be converted in the future to a standard knowledge base collection if a library wants to start managing the content of the collection at the title level.
To create a database-only collection:
Navigate to Collection Manager
Create the collection

In Collection Manager, you have the option to search and apply a filter to return all of your database-only collections. See the instructions to search for collections and filter your search results.
