Using Record Manager, you can create and edit WorldCat local holdings records (LHRs). You add an LHR record to a MARC 21 WorldCat bibliographic record.

Using Record Manager, you can create and edit WorldCat local holdings records (LHRs). You add an LHR record to a MARC 21 WorldCat bibliographic record. The information contained in the LHR contains information that is specific to your institution.

Specific fields are appropriate for LHRs. Some of these fields contain information that is similar to fields in the MARC 21 WorldCat record; however, the information in the LHR is not appropriate for users outside your institution.

Local holdings records may be exported with bibliographic records. For more information, see Export preferences.

 Note: If the local holdings record you are editing has been changed concurrently by another user or in a different session, you will receive an error message when you attempt to save your edits. Click Refresh and reapply your edits to save.
