Electronic Data Exchange (EDX) support

The Electronic Data Exchange (EDX) service to exchange bibliographic records with OCLC using File Transfer Protocol has been discontinued.

OCLC recommends that WorldShare® Collection Manager libraries retrieve files of records via My Files in the WorldShare interface, Metadata tab. Record reports will be delivered via email after you sign up via Reports in the WorldShare interface, Collection Manager, Settings.

An FTP/SFTP option is available. Contact OCLC Support for an FTP authorization and password. Please note that libraries uploading data associated with the WorldCat knowledge base collections might use options within Collection Manager Settings or within a collection's settings rather than use FTP/SFTP.

See the Collection Manager documentation for more information.


We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
