Record Manager

The WorldShare Metadata Record Manager application along with the Collection Manager application make up the cataloging component of WorldShare. You can use Record Manager for your metadata management activities, including adding and enhancing records for the benefit of your local collection. These records are then stored in WorldCat and shared with the entire OCLC cooperative.

In Record Manager, you will be able to:

  • Create and replace WorldCat master records using either the MARC 21 editor or the Text View editor, a simplified, labeled interface
  • Set and delete WorldCat holdings
  • Work with local data, such as adding and updating local holdings records (LHRs) and managing local bibliographic data (LBD)

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
