Working with WorldCat Holdings

Why didn't Record Manager automatically set a WorldCat holding when I added my record?

When you add a new record in Record Manager, you must click Save, then select Add New Record/Set WorldCat Holding. If you select Add New Record instead, a WorldCat holding is not set.

After I set a WorldCat holding in Record Manager, when can it be viewed on WorldCat.org?

  • If you use Record Manager to add a new (original) record to WorldCat, the holdings are immediately available in Connexion, FirstSearch and WorldCat.org.
  • If you use Record Manager to add an existing record to WorldCat, the holdings are available to view at different times for the various OCLC applications:
    • Connexion — immediately available
    • FirstSearch — available within 24 hours
    • WorldCat.org or WorldCat Local — available anywhere from 24 hours to a week later
