Can I move items from one collection to another?

  • Items are in one collection but need to be moved into a new collection
Applies to

It is not possible to move items between collections, and the only solution is to manually reupload the items to the desired collection. While this potentially represents a lot of additional work, below are some suggestions to expedite the process:

  • If the Source collection (incorrect collection) contains only the items that need to be relocated, a Collection Merge Request can be placed with OCLC Support.
  • If there are other items in the source collection that should not be copied to a new collection, exporting the XML of the desired items and converting that XML into a tab-delimited file will provide a starting point for the tab-delimited ingest of these items in Project Client.
