What is the query I would use to create a query collection for a list of my library's records without LHRs not including electronic items?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Collection Manager
Answer

This is the query that could be used to retrieve records without LHRs for your library: li:OCLC symbol NOT l4:OCLC symbol NOT mt:elc

Note the last search criteria is an electronic material type because most electronic items do not have LHRs.

  1. Create a Collection Manager Query collection with one of the following Selection criteria:
    • li:OCLC symbol NOT l4:OCLC symbol NOT mt:elc
      • Important! You MUST include the li: index with your library's symbol. Do NOT run a search without that limitation included.
  2. Enable MARC record delivery within the collection through the MARC Records tab.
  3. Save the collection being extra careful to check that the query's expected results match what you expect. If they do not or if your results are going to be over 25 million records, please contact OCLC Support.
  4. Use the Query WorldCat to create a spreadsheet of your WorldCat holdings instructions to get the report through MarcEdit.
