Options for libraries with a CatExpress subscription

This page provides details for libraries with a CatExpress subscription who use WorldShare Collection Manager for MARC record output. It shows the options that will not count against your subscription.

Get started

1. Create a Collection Manager account

If you need access to Collection Manager (the Metadata tab in the WorldShare interface), follow the steps to Create a Collection Manager account.

2. Explore your options

See how the options below relate to your CatExpress subscription. Follow the links to find instructions.

 Note: Enabling record delivery and enabling WorldCat holdings require separate actions in Collection Manager and each action can be performed independently. This behavior differs from that of the CatExpress application where one action sets a holding in WorldCat and initiates record delivery.

Options for CatExpress libraries

OCLC cataloged collections

MARC records delivered for OCLC cataloged collections will not count against your CatExpress total record budget.

OCLC cataloged collections are knowledge base collections cataloged by OCLC staff and are made available through Collection Manager by the provider. See the how to find OCLC cataloged collections in the WorldShare interface and find a list of providers with OCLC cataloged collections. Click on your provider for instructions:
