I just attempted to select a collection to add to our library holdings, but received a message saying that the collection is now locked for re-indexing.

Answer

Collections always lock after being selected. You will have to wait until the selection process has been completed.  This could be an hour, or it could be overnight.  If they don't unlock in 24 hours, please contact OCLC Support

Additional information

If a collection is locked for more then 24 hours, see this help document for information on what to tell OCLC support.
