Collection Manager

Use OCLC WorldShare Metadata Collection Manager to automatically deliver WorldCat MARC records for your materials. The service ensures that the metadata, access URLs, and WorldCat holdings for your collections are continually updated.

Depending on the profile options you choose, you can get new, delete, and/or update records for:

  • Standard Collections that you select or add to your WorldCat knowledge base via the WorldShare interface.
  • WorldCat Query Collections that you define via the WorldShare interface.
  • Updates to your holdings in WorldCat that you have set in any manner of your choice.
    Note: You will not get new or delete records.

You also have the option to have local holdings records (LHRs) interleaved with and/or have local bibliographic records (LBD) embedded in your records.
