I am getting a message inside my reports that says: Digital Collection Gateway Source record contains no OCLC number, but a record exists in WorldCat. Replaced in WorldCat . The record should be updated in your local collection.

  • Digital Collection Gateway
Answer

The message:
"Source record contains no OCLC number, but a record exists in WorldCat.  Replaced in WorldCat .  The record should be updated in  your local collection"

Is letting us know that Digital Collection Gateway has matched records from your repository to records inside WorldCat based on identical 856 fields.  The message is to inform you that Digital Collection Gateway has replaced the original WorldCat records with the records from your repository.

This message is mainly to inform a Digital Collection Gateway user that any editing of WorldCat  records that may have been done in a cataloging software such as Connexion has been overwritten by the records harvested from their repository.

For this reason, we recommend that all cataloging of Digital Collection Gateway harvested records be done on the repository side, and not the WorldCat side.

To avoid seeing the message inside your reports, you can change the collection's WorldCat Record Processing selection from "Replace All" to "Add New Only"

To do so, please follow the steps below.
1.Go to the home menu
2.Find the row for the collection and click view in the Collection Profile column
3.Under the Collection Details menu, you will see the WorldCat Record Processing setting
4.Select Add New Only
5.Click Save
