MARC record delivery with a CatExpress subscription

This page provides details for libraries with a CatExpress subscription who use WorldShare Collection Manager for MARC record output. It shows the options that will not count against your subscription.

 Note: Enabling record delivery and enabling WorldCat holdings require separate actions in Collection Manager and each action can be performed independently. This behavior differs from that of the CatExpress application where one action sets a holding in WorldCat and initiates record delivery.

OCLC cataloged collections

MARC records delivered for OCLC cataloged collections will not count against your CatExpress total record budget.
