Objective
  • A branch library name has changed and needs to be updated so that it appears correctly on hold request slips. 
Applies to
  • WorldShare Circulation
  • WorldShare ILL
  • Tipasa
Steps

There are two possibilities for updating a library branch name. One is to update it in WorldCat Registry > Branches and Affiliates.

  1. Sign in to OCLC Service Configuration with your WorldCat account.
  2. Go to WorldCat Registry > Branches and Affiliates.
  3. Click on the branch library name to be amended.
  4. Click the Select and Edit this record link.  This will open the branch library record at the Name and Location page.
  5. Edit the Institution Name and click Save Changes.

Alternatively, if the branch is an OCLC institution unto itself, you may make the update in WorldCat Registry > Name and Location.

  1. Sign in to the branch's OCLC Service Configuration with a WorldCat account.
  2. Go to WorldCat Registry > Name and Location.
  3. Edit the Institution Name and click Save Changes.

Please note that both of the above processes will amend the branch name throughout WorldShare with the exception of the Holding Location displayed in circ items which uses the Display Name in WorldCat Discovery and WorldCat Local > Holding Codes & Shelving Location Messages > Holding Codes Translation Table
