The OCLC Electronic Data Exchange Service (EDX) provides a mechanism for sending files to and/or retrieving files from OCLC.
Note: OCLC Product Services Web will allow you to select only one file at a time for downloading.
You will receive an e-mailed confirmation when your account is set up.
The OCLC system may require you to change your password the first time you log on and every 90 days thereafter. You may change your password before it expires.
Note: Your password stays the same when you log onto a different product within the system.
When you get the message " Password has expired" follow the steps below.
|1. Type the OCLC EDX FTP address.||
|2. At the next prompt, type your logon.||
t [xxx] 1
|3. Type password.||
[current password] / [your new password] / [repeat your new password]
For example, apple@12/orange12/orange12
If you receive the message " SAF/RACF extract error," your account has been revoked after too many logon attempts using the wrong password. Contact OCLC Customer Services Division (CSD) at (800) 848-5800 or (614) 793-8682 (press option #1), or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to have your password reset.
Note: First time logging in? Your logon, t [xxx] 1, is the current password and must be changed.
The preceding instructions for changing passwords apply to most systems.
Instructions may vary depending on your system.
