What standard should my data adhere to?
WMS data migration requires conformance to MARC21.
On analyzing your OLIB data, exceptions can normally be worked through with the advice of the OCLC data specialist.
Data transfer for OLIB includes as standard:
- Monographic Series
- Serials data
- Electronic resources - managed through WorldShare Collection Manager/WorldCat Knowledge Base which means that separate item records will no longer be required to represent your e-resources
- Item “Copies” data
OCLC use three standard documents:
- Data Migration Questionnaire
- Scope Statement
- Translation Table
