Rutgers University Libraries completed implementation of Alma and Primo in June 2018. As the previous ILS, SirsiDynix Symphony, was deployed at Rutgers in 1997, a variety of pre-migration data cleanup projects were necessary as part of the implementation process. One of the largest and most important of these endeavors was a reclamation of WorldCat holdings via OCLC Datasync/Bibliographic Collection. This presentation will address the many stages of reclamation, including pre-reclamation cleanup, batch loading and processing of OCLC records to and from WorldShare, and post-reclamation cleanup. Additionally, the presenters will address the problems encountered in the reclamation process as multiple passes of the data were required to establish the best data alignment between the local catalog and WorldCat. Finally, post-Alma implementation cleanup work as a result of reclamation will be addressed.
