Batchload support

OCLC is helping streamline cataloging workflows by integrating functionality from a number of different cataloging services into WorldShare Collection Manager. OCLC anticipates the transition of Batchload to WorldShare Collection Manager to begin later this year. This will provide your institution with a number of additional capabilities including:

  • Faster synchronization of library collections with WorldCat
  • The ability to submit larger files of bibliographic and LHR data
  • Correction of "unresolved" records in WorldCat
  • Access to enhanced activity reports and detailed error reports
  • More record output formats including Unicode UTF-8, MARCXML, Dublin Core and MODS
  • Additional WorldCat record output customization options

Please visit the Collection Manager transition page for additional details to help you prepare.
