Data sync collection interface overview

Data sync interface

 

1.  Create a Collection

 Note: Before you create a new collection, search to ensure your institution has not created a data sync collection. Once a data sync collection is created, it cannot be deleted.

Click the Create a Collection button to create a new data sync collection. You will be prompted to select the type of collection (Data Sync Collection) you would like to create in Collection Manager and the type of data sync collection you would like to create.

2.  Buttons

Submit Collection: Allows you to send the completed collection to OCLC for file processing.

Save Progress: Allows you to save the collection to gather more information or clarification as needed before it is submitted.

Make Default Collection: Allows you to set the collection as the default. Files will be processed by default for this collection if no collection is provided.

 Note: This button will only be enabled if you have multiple collections. If you only have one collection, it is automatically the default collection.

3.  Accordions

Each data sync collection will contain the Properties, Comments, and Contact Information accordions. Other accordions (Bibliographic Records Information, Local Bibliographic Data, Local Holdings Records Information, and MARC Record Output) vary depending on collection type.
