OCLC is working with libraries on three continents to beta test OCLC WorldShare Metadata Record Manager, which offers new record management functionality that enhances a library’s ability to catalog its collections, including electronic, digital and physical materials. OCLC began working with a group of academic, public and special libraries in the United States early this year to test Record Manager functionality. Libraries in the U.K., Australia and Spain recently joined the pilot. Cataloging librarians at the participating libraries are using Record Manager to create new WorldCat records, enrich existing records, maintain WorldCat holdings data and customize local bibliographic data. This brings with it flexibility and improvements to the way libraries describe and profile the unique resources that they hold.
