What are database-only collections?
- WorldShare Collection Manager
- WorldShare Acquisitions
- WorldShare License Manager
Database-only collections are used primarily by WorldShare Acquisitions and WorldShare License Manager libraries when they need to acquire collections or associate licenses with collections that do not have a defined list of titles. For example, a library might create a database-only collection for the Oxford English Dictionary website.
Doing so would:
- Create an order in Acquisitions
- Create an entry in the library's WorldCat Discovery A to Z list which will be visible under Browse > Collections
Note: Database-only collections will not set holdings in WorldCat or output MARC records.
