WorldShare Collection Manager release notes, September 2018

Release Date: 16 September 2018


The Collection Manager September 2018 release includes enhancements to:

  • Clone a data sync collection
  • Add East View Information Services as a cataloging partner collection provider

There have also been several bug fixes.


Reduced turnaround time for updates to some WorldCat knowledge base collections

Improved processing for our largest knowledge base providers has reduced the turnaround time for a number of collections, including automated holdings feeds, to within a week of receipt from the provider.

Clone a WorldCat data sync collection

Users now can clone an existing data sync collection, thus saving setup time. Want to quickly create a new collection? Simply open an existing data sync collection with similar settings and select Clone Collection from the Collection Actions drop-down menu. Make any needed adjustments and then save the collection with a new name.

New WorldCat cataloging partner collection provider!

Cataloging partner collections are now offered for East View Information Services. Please contact East View at if you wish to implement this service.

Bug fixes

Incomplete uploads via My Files

Some files have been received in an incomplete state when users upload files via My Files for data sync collections. This problem has been resolved.

Collection settings not saved

In some cases, when an institution changed a setting at the collection level and saved the new setting, the setting was not being retained. A short-term fix has been put in place while a long-term resolution is devised.

Re-adding a Grouped OCN

Re-adding a Grouped OCN to a knowledge base title that had previously been removed would not save as expected. This issue has been resolved.

Better URI formatting

Collection Manager has resolved the issue that resulted in inclusion of ".html" in URIs for LC and MeSH heading. Previously, URIs were output in this format:

100  1\$aTolstoy, Leo,$cgraf,$d1828-1910.$0

The URIs will now be output in this format:

100  1\$aTolstoy, Leo,$cgraf,$d1828-1910.$0
