Policies, Resources, and Guidelines for Creating WorldCat Records

This instructor-led online course explains OCLC standards for original bibliographic records in WorldCat.

Course Overview

This instructor-led online course explains OCLC standards for original bibliographic records in WorldCat, regardless of OCLC cataloging interface (Connexion or WorldShare Record Manager) used.  This course does not cover RDA, AACR2, or other cataloging rules, MARC, subject headings, or authority control.

Audience

This course is intended for learners who are familiar with current cataloging rules (such as RDA or AACR2) and MARC.  This course will be of particular benefit to catalogers who have experience with creating original bibliographic records but have not yet contributed records to WorldCat, and to technical services managers who oversee original cataloging operations.


PLEASE NOTE: This course does not focus on AACR or RDA rules.  If you are interested in learining about cataloging rules, check out the offerings from OCLC's  training partners.
