My vendor is changing their base URLs. How can I update the knowledge base collection links for them?

Symptom
  • A database vendor you use is changing the URL they will be using for links into their content. You have a collection in the WorldCat knowledge base that uses the old links and want to update them to the new URL.
Applies to
  • WorldCat knowledge base 
  • Collection Manager
Resolution

Are the links to be corrected in a custom local collection or in a global collection? If the links are in a custom local collection that you created, you'll want to download the KBART data for that file and correct the links in Excel (or a text editor) then re-upload the corrected file. 

If the links are in a global collection, contact OCLC Support with your symbol, the name of the collection that the URL change is impacting, and the vendor name. If work hasn't already been done by the WorldCat knowledge base team to correct the change, they will enter a request to have it done for that collection.  

Additional information

There is more information on downloading and editing collections using KBART.
