What is the approval process for data updates?

OCLC ingests data from a growing number of providers and manages the data. We normalize and properly format the data in a way that it can be loaded into the system after it undergoes our quality assurance process.

Data updates loaded to the knowledge base platform from providers do not need to be approved via cooperative management (although there was a time in 2014 when they needed to be approved by a threshold of 5% of libraries that held the collection).
