    How to publish to OCLC (WorldCat) a big set of records regardless of management tags?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    OCLC publishing depends on the management tags.
    Is there a job to flip these tags in batch?

    It is possible to “force” publishing to OCLC / WorldCat, this way:

    1. Create an All Titles or Physical Titles Set
    2. Then click: Run a Job > Filter for type: Marc21 Bib Normalization
    3. Select: "Synchronize Bib records with external catalog"
    4. Run a Job "Bib OCLC Republish Set of Titles"

    Additional Information

    The Synchronize Records with External Catalog job - will actually flip the tags from "Do not Publish" to "Publish".
    The option exists - to flip the tag for Publish Holdings Only, or for Bibliographic records.
