Is there a way to delete WorldCat records that have been harvested through Digital Collection Gateway?

Applies to
  • Digital Collection Gateway 

Only owning institutions may request to have DCG records removed. If you are not the owning institution, please reach out to them directly and ask that they remove or correct the broken link.

If you wish to only delete a few records from WorldCat that were harvested from DCG, you will need to provide OCLC Support with a list of the OCNs that need deleted.

If you want all harvested records to be removed from WorldCat, please contact OCLC Support with the request.

Please be aware that we cannot delete a record if another library has placed a hold on it.
