WorldCat registry

Configure and maintain a profile that defines your institutional identity, to enable all web users access to your institution's services and set relevant data for other OCLC products.

Configure your WorldCat registry settings:

  • Create a new institution
  • Update or add directory-style information such as name, home page and identifiers.
  • List services such as your online catalog, IP addresses, OpenURL resolvers, and virtual reference service.
  • Add a mapped location and hours of operation.
  • Set branch and affiliation information.
  • Supply your institution’s staff contacts.
  • View an institution’s profile summary and profile history.
  • Share or download an institution’s profile.

Please see the WorldCat support area, WorldCat registry site, for help with settings in the WorldCat registry module of OCLC Service Configuration.
