WorldCat® knowledge base

To serve our users better, the WorldCat knowledge base is transitioning all users from the WorldCat knowledge base module in OCLC Service Configuration to the WorldShare interface, Metadata tab. For instructions you might need for the transition, see the Transition to the WorldShare interface page.

WorldCat Collection Sets

OCLC is discontinuing WorldCat Collection Set in the coming weeks. Some sets are no longer available and others will be migrated to our WorldCat knowledge base with ongoing record updates delivered via WorldShare Metadata Collection Manager.

  • Microform and Non-Microform Collections Sets are no longer available.
  • Electronic Collection Sets' migration to the WorldCat knowledge base (with record delivery available via WorldShare Metadata Collection Manager) will happen on a scheduled basis beginning in September 2014 and lasting through December 2014.

If you use WorldCat Collection Sets and would like additional information, please contact WorldCatCollectionSetsMigration@oclc.org
