Increase the visibility of your institution's digital resources

OCLC is transitioning OAIster harvesting to a self-service model using the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway. The WorldCat Gateway is a Web-based tool that enables organizations to upload the metadata of their digital content to OAIster and WorldCat. Offering more control over the metadata harvesting process, the WorldCat Gateway allows you to customize how your metadata displays in WorldCat.org and determine your own metadata harvesting schedule—monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually.

The WorldCat Gateway is compatible with all OAI-compliant repositories and is available at no charge.

If you have any questions about contributing your metadata, please contact us.
