Use the Digital Collection Gateway

Use this guide to lead you through the steps for using the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway to add records to WorldCat from OAI-PMH compliant repositories or your CONTENTdm metadata records.

In order to use the Gateway with your OAI-PMH compliant repositories, be sure that the following conditions are met:

  • Your OAI-PMH compliant repository is running. 
  • You have one or more existing collections with metadata fields mapped to Dublin Core and/or Qualified Dublin Core (dcterms).
  • You have an OCLC-supplied Key for the Gateway. 

To successfully create WorldCat records from your CONTENTdm metadata records:

  • The CONTENTdm Server must be running with one or more collections enabled for WorldCat Sync.
  • The collections enabled for WorldCat Sync must have metadata fields mapped to Dublin Core.
