Delete WorldCat holdings

Overview

When you delete a WorldCat holding on a MARC 21 bibliographic record, your institution's OCLC symbol is no longer associated with the bibliographic record. Use this action when you no longer hold the item or if you inadvertently linked your OCLC symbol to the wrong record.

If you have LHRs attached to the record or LBD information, the system also removes these items.

Delete a WorldCat holding on a bibliographic record

  1. From the MARC 21 editor, click Record.
  2. From the Record drop-down menu, select Delete from the WorldCat Holding flyout menu. If you have LHRs attached to the record or LBD information, the system asks you to confirm that you want to remove it.
  3. Click Yes to remove LHRs, LBDs, and WorldCat holdings from the record. The OCLC symbol is removed from the top of the record.
