Connexion Browser Module 5 – Editing Master Records (Recording)

Course overview

This course provides instruction on OCLC’s rules and process for editing and improving master records in the WorldCat database with a standard, full-level cataloging authorization. After completing this web-based training, learners will be ready to apply their existing knowledge of cataloging rules to the process of improving master records in the WorldCat database. Trainees will also learn the financial incentives for improving master records, identify in-depth resources to assist them in the process of improving master records, as well as learn procedures for reporting record errors that cannot be fixed by members with full-level cataloging authorizations.

How to use this course

OCLC's training recordings are a useful tool for understanding the functionality our products when you want the in-depth learning of an instructor-led course, but your schedule won't permit you to attend. They are also great as refreshers of past training or as preparation for upcoming instructor-led courses. They can help you learn a new service, teach a new staff member how to use a service, or simply help you confirm your understanding of the service, without the time commitment of attanding a live course.
