Get records for content from providers

OCLC partners with providers to offer WorldCat records and holdings maintenance for content from your providers. Records from knowledge base collections within Collection Manager will include library-specific, full-text links.

OCLC partners with providers to offer WorldCat records and holdings maintenance for content from your providers. Records are available to libraries with an OCLC Cataloging Subscription and to libraries without a subscription. However, some functionality like setting holdings in WorldCat is only available to libraries with an OCLC Cataloging Subscription. All libraries can find relevant instructions to get started linked from each provider's page.

Records are available through WorldShare Collection Manager unless otherwise noted and do not include additional fees unless otherwise noted. Records output by libraries with a CatExpress subscription do count towards their total budget. Records for content from providers that are not accessible through Collection Manager are available through Contract Cataloging and will include additional fees for all libraries regardless of subscription.

Records from knowledge base collections within Collection Manager will include library-specific, full-text links. Libraries that use OCLC services like WorldCat Discovery or WorldShare Management Services can expose those links in their discovery interface. To find more information about collection types and services, see Use Collection Manager for content from a specific provider.

 Note: If you don't see your privider listed on this page, try to find your provider on the Collections available in the WorldCat knowledge base list. Then follow the steps to Select a knowledge base collection in full or to Modify a collection to select your subset of titles.
