WorldShare Collection Manager release notes, March 2020


Release Date: March 26, 2020


This release of WorldShare Collection Manager provides two new enhancements: 

  • Improved functionality for Shared Print, adds a Print Archives Program pick list for ease of use in setting 583 $f
  • Added a time saving feature for the Leader entry for Excluded Information for Control/Fixed Fields in data sync collections

New features and enhancements

Controlled list of Print Archives authoritative names

You can now select Print Archive Program names from a controlled drop-down list. The controlled list standardizes entries for Archiving Program Name (583 $f) in a Shared Print collection, which will make it easier to query for MARC records, find records in WorldCat Discovery, and more.

New Archiving Program Name (583 $f) format

Previously, the Archiving Program Name (583 $f) was a free-form text field, and you had to lookup program names using the Print Archives Preservation Registry.


New Leader type option in data sync collections

You now have the ability to select Any when configuring the Leader tag for Excluded Information for Control/Fixed Fields in the Processing tab. When you select Any from the Type drop-down list, the Offset and Length options will be enabled.


Previously, you had to select each Leader Type to be excluded individually.
