Release Date: March 26, 2020
This release of WorldShare Collection Manager provides two new enhancements:
- Improved functionality for Shared Print, adds a Print Archives Program pick list for ease of use in setting 583 $f
- Added a time saving feature for the Leader entry for Excluded Information for Control/Fixed Fields in data sync collections
New features and enhancements
Controlled list of Print Archives authoritative names
You can now select Print Archive Program names from a controlled drop-down list. The controlled list standardizes entries for Archiving Program Name (583 $f) in a Shared Print collection, which will make it easier to query for MARC records, find records in WorldCat Discovery, and more.
Previously, the Archiving Program Name (583 $f) was a free-form text field, and you had to lookup program names using the Print Archives Preservation Registry.
New Leader type option in data sync collections
You now have the ability to select Any when configuring the Leader tag for Excluded Information for Control/Fixed Fields in the Processing tab. When you select Any from the Type drop-down list, the Offset and Length options will be enabled.
Previously, you had to select each Leader Type to be excluded individually.
