WorldCat Collection Sets

Pre-packaged sets of records for vendor materials, and ongoing record delivery as titles are added

OCLC WorldCat Collection Sets let your library’s users quickly have access to a newly purchased set of microform, nonmicroform, or electronic content by providing a matching, precataloged set of MARC records ready to load into your local system. Your staff is spared the process of cataloging hundreds or thousands of individual titles. And your holdings of the new materials are automatically set in WorldCat, so they are immediately visible to sharing libraries around the world.

“Many of the WorldCat sets represent subject areas requiring cataloging expertise an individual library may not be able to draw upon. As a law library that has provided cataloging for several sets, our catalogers are able to approach these sets with a level of subject analysis that truly increases patron access.”
