How long will it take for my data sync files to be processed?

Data sync file processing

The length of time it will take for your data sync files to be processed is dependent on a number of factors. The following steps must be successfully completed:

  • Your data sync files have been received by OCLC
  • Your files have been processed. Please note: The initial files you send can take up to 8 weeks to be processed
  • Your data sync collection is in an Accepted status. The status of the collection is visible within the data sync collection. To see the status:
    1. Search for a data sync collection within Collection Manager.
    2. Click on the collection to open it and find the status under Collection Status.
  • Once your files are processed, reports and records will be posted to:
    • the WorldShare interface, My Files area
    • OCLC's server for you to access via sFTP
