Abstract

In this session, we will describe a use case for WorldShare Collection Manager (WCM) as a source for ebook MARC records in Alma. We will cover which description scenarios are a good fit for WCM, and why we opted to use WCM as a record source as an alternative to the Alma Community Zone. We will share the basic steps in setting up the service: the setup necessary in WCM, scheduled Alma import profiles, and normalization rules for standardizing records. We will discuss the differences in the Alma import profiles and merge rules for new, updated, and deleted WCM records. We will also share ways to configure WCM record delivery to optimize record updates and record quality, as well as ways that individual libraries can contribute to the improvement of the records in WCM. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of service quality – both in terms of record quality and as a service. We will share procedures for automatically evaluating record quality using Python scripts.
