There are two validation types available for local bibliographic records in Record Manager:
- Automatic validation occurs after you take certain actions on local bibliographic data records.
- Manual validation occurs when you click the Validate button in the local bibliographic data record. Manual validation checks the quality of local bibliographic data records and prevents records with errors from being added to or replaced in WorldCat records.
After you manually validate a record, you cannot undo your changes to the local bibliographic data record.
