WorldCat Collection Sets at a glance

WorldCat Collection Sets save you the trouble of cataloging newly purchased sets of microform, nonmicroform, and electronic content by providing you a matching set of complete MARC bibliographic records ready to load into your local catalog.


  • Save time and money by downloading precataloged records rather than having staff catalog items individually
  • Make your collections available more quickly to users and resource sharing libraries around the world
  • Increase use of new and existing materials such as microfilm, microfiche and electronic resources


  • Precataloged records readily available for high-demand content collections
  • Your library’s holding symbol is automatically set in WorldCat
  • New sets added continuously


To contribute a collection set your staff has cataloged, your library must be an OCLC member institution.

You do not have to be an OCLC member library to purchase WorldCat Collection Sets.
