Enhanced cataloging applications
We’ve enhanced WorldShare Record Manager with the ability to look up WorldCat Entities within the existing cataloging workflows and then add linked data identifiers to records. This functionality will also be added to Connexion client.
Record output with identifiers
WorldCat Entities URIs are now included in MARC records exported using OCLC cataloging tools. Individual exports of MARC records with linked data identifiers through WorldShare Record Manager, Connexion, the WorldCat Metadata API, and Z39.50 protocol provide record-by-record access to linked data identifiers. And bulk output is available in WorldShare Collection Manager.
Coming soon: OCLC Meridian, a WorldCat Entities linked data management tool, and a suite of APIs will enable entities creation when and where needed, lowering the barrier to authority creation and curation.
