    Updating OCLC with holdings code

    • Article Type: General

    We want to send updates to OCLC to indicate that we hold certain records. What's the best way to do this?

    Aleph has a p_export_02 service which was set up for this specific purpose:

    "This service can be used to export holdings records. The service retrieves and
    builds a file of records for export based on librarian input in the XPR field
    in the holdings record.... You may want to retrieve records for the purpose of exporting holdings records
    to another institution. You could retrieve, for example, holdings records
    updated in the last 14 days."

    Note: export-02 is included in the menu-catalog-hol.xml which you see as the Services for usm60.
