Our institution has files web-hosted by a software provider. How can these records be uploaded to OCLC and made visible in WorldCat?

Applies to
  • Digital Collection Gateway
Answer

OCLC offers a free metadata harvesting software called Digital Collection Gateway.  Digital Collection Gateway will harvest data from OAI-PMH conforming repositories. Please check with your repository software provider to see if they are OAI-PMH conforming, and if so, ask for an OAI-PMH base URL from them.  We can set you up with a Digital Collection Gateway account to manage the harvesting.

Additional information

If you do not already have a Digital Collection Gateway account, please contact our orders department to get one set up.
