Why doesn't the call number on the MARC record I received match the call number on the label our vendor supplied?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Collection Manager

In order to make sure the call number in your library's MARC record matches the one from your provider, please be sure to choose the option to get the call number for items through cataloging partner options.

This can be done in WorldShare > Metadata > Institution Settings > MARC Records > Customize Records. You will need to add a field for call number - for example, a 949 $a field.

You can then select Cataloging Partner Data from the dropdown menu and select Call Number.
