How do I update item format in a knowledge base title from journal to ebook

  • The item format on a knowledge base record does not match the MARC record format. Therefore, full text links are not showing in WorldCat Discovery. 
Applies to
  • WorldShare Collection Manager
  • WorldCat knowledge base 
  • WorldCat Discovery

If the collection is customizable, you will need to update the format using a KBART file. Within the KBART, do the following:

  1. Download the KBART file for the collection with incorrect format type.
  2. Identify the record within the file (usually, you'd open the KBART in Excel and search for it).
  3. Change the coverage depth column for the title with incorrect information to: ebook
  4. Change the action to: overlay 
  5. Reupload the KBART file into the collection .

If the collection is not customizable or you have any issues, contact OCLC Support for assistance.
