OCLC Worldcat – Find in a Library May 6, 2006

Posted by Mia in OCLC Worldcat.

Concordia bib records are being uploaded to the OCLC Worldcat database, and results are beginning to populate Google's "Find in a Library" results.

The process of loading/indexing undergoes a series of steps at OCLC, and this takes time. Records are being sent sequentially, from the beginning of the .b range; roughly 300,000 records have been successfully loaded to date as of this post.

It will be a few months before the load of retrospective records can be considered complete, including records that are now being rejected and which will undergo further processing at a later stage.

Following this one-time retrospective load, expectations are to upload additional records to OCLC on an annual basis. Though most of our titles will eventually be reflected in OCLC WorldCat, it will never mirror the entirety of Concordia holdings, and current acquisitions will not appear there.
