Work with local bibliographic data

LBD is local information that complements the full bibliographic data in the WorldCat database. Enhance the bibliographic record for local use by adding local subject headings, uniform titles, or notes.

Using local bibliographic data (LBD), you can add local information to a bibliographic record that is specific to your institution’s title; however, other institutions will not be able to see that information in the MARC 21 WorldCat record and your users will only see your institution’s LBD.

Essentially, LBD is local information that complements the full bibliographic data in the WorldCat database. Enhance the bibliographic record for local use by adding local subject headings, uniform titles, or notes.
